The UFC held a media luncheon for UFC 170 in Los Angeles, C.A. yesterday, and featured at the event were champ Ronda Rousey, challenger Sara McMann and co-main eventer Daniel Cormier. Worth noting is that all three fighters are Olympians – Rousey for judo and McMann and Cormier for wrestling.
Also worth noting: the respect Rousey and McMann have for each other, which is refreshing after all the Rousey/Tate bad blood. Of course, there are no guarantees the female bantamweight champ won’t switch into “grrrr” mode as the February 22 fight approaches, but for now at least we can enjoy the smiles.
Here’s MMAWeekly with a clip of the staredown:
Who thinks McMann can beat Rousey?
