With ProElite’s third show coming up on January 21 in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Outsider was lucky enough to land an interview with rising female 135-pound contender Sara McMann.
A 2004 Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling, McMann is already 4-0 in her MMA career and moving up the rankings of the toughest division in the sport. Her most notable wins came over respected veteran Tonya Evinger and tough prospect Raquel Paaluhi. On Saturday she’ll take on her biggest test yet: Strikeforce veteran Hitomi Akano (18-8).
We discussed all of that, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’ failed drug test, and more.
