Former UFC No. 1 female bantamweight title contender Sara McMann is celebrating turning 34 years old today.
And when she blows out her birthday candles, there is just one present the former Olympian is hoping for: a date with Miesha Tate.
McMann (8-1) took to Twitter Wednesday asking for a fight with her fellow ex-No. 1 contender Tate.
“All I want for my BDay is a fight w/Miesha Tate!” she wrote. “As a present, RT this as much as possible so UFC and Dana White know the fans want it 2!”
After falling to Ronda Rousey earlier this year, McMann rebounded by scoring a split decision vs. Lauren Murphy. Having already collected Olympic silver, she is still in search of securing UFC gold.
Tate (15-5) has won two straight – both via decision – over Liz Carmouche and Rin Nakai since a December loss to Rousey.
