Now that it’s been announced that Sara McMann has been released from Invicta FC to join the ranks of Strikeforce, we’re coming to the logical assumption that she will eventually face Ronda Rousey for the Strikeforce 135 lb title. Of course, all of this can only happen if Cris Cyborg refuses to drop to bantamweight — and Gina Carano doesn’t return to the sport of MMA. Don’t fool yourself, the biggest PPV that can ever be assembled is not between Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre, it’s Ronda Rousey vs. Gina Carano. Prove me wrong. Run the numbers in whatever computer program you can create. If ZUFFA wants to shatter all attendance and PPV records, kidnap Gina Carano from the set of The Fast and the Furious 6 and throw her in a cage.
Olympic silver medalist wrestler vs. Olympic bronze medalist judoka. That’s like combat sports’ version of Batman vs. Superman — except they’re not men, and we’re not sure which one is from planet Krypton. Check out this highlight reel of both Sara McMann and Ronda Rousey, and don’t be surprised when the match-up is announced in the immediate future.
