UFC 170: Rousey vs McMann Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

With the loss of top marketable fighters likes Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva, UFC 170 has taken on an added importance as Ronda Rousey returns to the cage with her Bantamweight title on the line. The undefeated Rousey has dominated her opponents, finishing all who oppose her by arm bar, but she will now face her toughest challenge to date in the form of fellow Olympic medalist Sarah McMann. McMann, like Rousey, has started her career undefeated, including an impressive win in her UFC debut. Can McMann shutdown the dominant Judo attack of the champion or will Ronda once again rein supreme?

Also on the main card, Olympian Daniel Cormier makes his Light Heavyweight division against former training partner and late notice replacement Patrick Cummins. Cormier was schedule to face former divisional champion Rashad Evans, but an injury force Rashad out of the bout and Cummins took the opportunity to step up after just 4 pro fights. Cormier enters as a heavy favourite, but will still have some significant questions to answer in his new division no matter who is opponent is.

In the highest profile of a trio of main card Welterweight fights, top 10 ranked Rory MacDonald and Demian Maia collide in a key battle for both men’s future title aspirations. #15 ranked Mike Pyle returns to the cage to face dangerous submission artist TJ Waldburger, and Robert Whittaker faces dangerous kickboxer Stephan Thompson.
