There’s no question McMann is top dog when it comes to female wrestlers in the UFC. She has won medals in multiple World Championships and brought home silver at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. While she’s still raw from a MMA perspective, McMann’s work ethic, takedowns, and top control have made her a force thus far in the sport, leading to impressive victories over veterans like Hitomi Akano and Shayna Baszler.
A wave of disappointment washed over the masses earlier this year when wrestling was removed from the Summer Olympics. Fortunately, the issue ultimately became a short-lived one after outrage from fans and a few notable UFC fighters caught the attention of the powers that be who recently decided to give wrestling a reprieve. With one of the world’s oldest sports back on the agenda in 2020, it’s time to celebrate by taking a look at some of the finest wrestlers to currently call the UFC home.
