Sara McMann’s challenge has been answered.
It was announced Monday Amanda Nunes would face McMann August 8th on the UFC Fight Night card in Nashville. Several women had through their hat in the cage after McMann asked for a willing opponent a few weeks ago on the MMA Hour podcast.
Nunes (9-4) is coming off a TKO won over Shayna Baszler. She has won three of her four fights in the UFC.
McMann is coming off a razor thin majority decision loss to Miesha Tate after defeated Lauren Muprhy by a close split decision.
A win by either will get them back in the title hunt.
The match will most likely air on Fox Sports 1.
