She wants another shot...
Sara McMann spoke with MMAjunkie about her loss to Ronda Rousey at UFC 170, her bout with Lauren Murphy at UFC Fight Night 47 this weekend and more. Check out the highlights:
On wanting a second shot at Rousey: "I'm eager for a rematch. There's definitely the disappointment that I had a lot more to offer."
On the rematch desire being personal: "I'm a super competitive person. Right now, I don't even care about the title as much. I just want to fight her. If she has the title, that's great. If she doesn't have the title, I still want to fight her."
On the positives she took away from the loss: "I got caught, and that can happen to anybody. It's disappointing to get caught, but if I had gone in there and I had gotten dominated, that would be really, really hard for me. I'm working so hard, I'm pushing myself to the maximum and there's someone that's just better than me? I think that would be harder."
On the stakes of her fight with Murphy: "(A victory) should push me up a lot closer to the top. If people don't want to fight me, it's because I'm good and am worthy of a title shot. … I feel like with another win I should be right there for a rematch."
