On August 16, 2014, UFC fighter Sara McMann will step into the Octagon against undefeated fighter Lauren Murphy at UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. St. Preux. UFC Fight Night will take place at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.

In her most recent fight, McMann, an Olympic medalist in wrestling, lost by TKO in the first round against Riverside County's Ronda Rousey, the UFC Champion in the women's bantamweight division. In the fight, Rousey, a bronze medalist in Olympic judo, bullied McMann against the cage with punches and knees until a knee dropped McMann to the ground. Although many people thought the fight was stopped prematurely, McMann did not complain about the stoppage and accepted the loss with grace.

Although McMann fell short of many people's expectations in her fight with Rousey, McMann hopes to rebound from the loss with a win over Murphy. McMann already has wins over tough opponents such as UFC fighter Sheila Gaff, UFC fighter Shayna Baszler, and The Ultimate Fighter contestant Tonya Evinger. McMann hopes to add another notable win to her record by defeating Murphy, who has wins against well-respected opponents such as Kaitlin Young, Sara D'Alelio, and Miriam Nakamoto.

The fight between McMann and Murphy is scheduled to be the first fight on UFC Fight Night. Below are the other fights that are scheduled for the event.
