On Saturday, Feb. 22, the UFC hosted UFC 170: Rousey vs. McMann from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, a pair of undefeated Olympic medalists squared off as women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey put her 135-pound strap on the line against Sara McMann. Rousey stepped into the cage less than two months after defeating bitter rival Miesha Tate at UFC 168. The win extended Rousey’s unblemished record to 8-0, with all eight wins coming by armbar. McMann, meanwhile, competed in the Octagon for the second time, having stopped Sheila Gaff by TKO at UFC 159.

The co-main event was expected to feature former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans welcoming another undefeated Olympian, Daniel Cormier, to the 205-pound division. However, Evans suffered a knee injury just two weeks before the event and was replaced by promotional newcomer Patrick Cummins.

Rounding out the pay-per-view main card was a trio of welterweight contests as Rory MacDonald battled Demian Maia, Mike Pyle faced off with T.J. Waldburger, and Stephen Thompson took on Robert Whittaker.

The 11-fight event kicked off at 7 p.m ET with two fights streaming on the promotion’s digital network, Fight Pass. Four additional bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. with the five-fight, pay-per-view main card starting at 10 p.m.
