Sara McMann has her eyes on Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano as the winner becomes the new No. 1 contender in a division that is young with few names. For McMann, it’s a stalemate.
“I think both have similar skill sets,” said McMann on the Rick J Lee channel. “That fight is going to be a chess match. I think it’s going to be a lot of scrambles and changing of the position.”
She believes Zingano will look to keep this one standing and Tate will go for the submission. They fight Saturday on The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.
The winner also coaches opposite champion Ronda Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter next season.
McMann makes her first Octagon appearance at UFC 159 when she takes on Sheila Gaff. That’s set for April 27 from Newark, NJ’s Prudential Center.
