Time: 10pm ET/7pm PT
Location: Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada
UFC's first return home to Las Vegas in 2014 will take place on February 22nd when UFC 170 takes place at Mandalay Bay.
The main event will see former Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann, as she faces off with Ronda Rousey for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship.
The UFC 170 co-main event, will see the long-awaited light heavyweight debut of Daniel Cormier, as he takes on former champ Rashad Evans. A win for Cormier could earn him a title shot against the winner of the UFC 172 bout between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira.
Ronda Rousey (7-0), picked up her seventh career pro victory by armbar at UFC 168, though Tate was her first opponent to make it out of the first round. She has a world-class judo background—including a bronze medal from the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.
Sara McMann, is also currently undefeated in her professional career and will enter the fight with the exact same (7-0) record.
McMann, last competed at UFC 159 where she defeated Sheila Gaff in the first round by technical knockout. McMann, was slated to fight Sarah Kaufman this past August, though she had to pull out of the bout due to personal reasons.
McMann owns a silver medal in freestyle wrestling from the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and is currently ranked #4 in the Women’s Bantamweight Rankings under Cat Zingano, Miesha Tate and Alexis Davis.
Now the two women's bantamweight fighters will face off at UFC 170 in February 2014 with the championship on the line.
Rashad Evans (19-3-1 MMA, 14-3-1 UFC), won the UFC’s 205-pound title in 2008 against Forrest Griffin, but he lost it in his first defense against Lyoto Machida.
He then went on a four-fight winning streak, before he sufferd back-to-back losses in 2012, including a lopsided decision to Jon Jones in an April title bid. But since then, he has back-to-back wins over Dan Henderson and a TKO win over Chael Sonnen.
Daniel Cormier (13-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC), will make his much-anticipated move to the 205-pound division. The unbeaten Olympian is regarded as one of MMA’s best wrestlers, and he’ll get a tough test in his debut in the weight class against another highly touted wrestler in Evans.
After winning the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament, Cormier, who trains at American Kickboxing Academy, won one more fight there before moving over to the UFC for a pair of wins over Frank Mir and Roy Nelson.
