The Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nev., will be the site for today's UFC 170: Rousey vs. McMann pre-fight press conference live stream, which MMA fans can view on Examiner.com courtesy of a Feb. 20, 2014 MMAFighting report via UFC/Zuffa LLC.
Joining UFC president Dana White will be women's bantamweight champion (8-0) Ronda Rousey along with title-contender (7-0) Sara McMann, the two fighters comprising Saturday night's UFC 170 main event on pay-per-view.
Not only will this be the first time that two undefeated Olympic medalists compete in an MMA event, but this is also a matchup of two high-caliber athletes who have rewritten the history books.
In 2008, Rousey became the first American (female) judoka to medal in the Olympics, capturing the bronze for Team USA in Beijing. Four years earlier (Athens 2004), McMann also broke ground for the Red White and Blue, becoming the first woman ever to win a silver medal in Olympic wrestling.
Also on hand at today's UFC 170 (live stream) pre-fight presser will be former Strikeforce heavyweight champion (13-0) Daniel Cormier. In his first fight at 205-pounds, "DC" takes on (4-0) Patrick Cummins, an ex-trainer partner who – even on short notice – got the opportunity of his life following Rashad Evans' knee injury.
