The Ultimate Fighting Championship has reportedly confirmed its third women’s bout, as decorated wrestler Sara McMann will fight Sheila Gaff on April 27th. The bantamweight fight will be part of the promotion’s upcoming UFC 159 card, which will be hosted by the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
News of the match-up was reported first by grounandpound.de and was subsequently confirmed by MMA Junkie.
McMann (6-0), who is a former Olympic Silver Medalist in wrestling, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Shayna Bazler at an Invicta FC event last July.
The German fighter Gaff (10-4-1), meanwhile, scored a knockout win over Jennifer Maia while competing for Cage Warrriors last March.
UFC 159 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen and will be available via pay-per-view.
