On Saturday, Feb. 22, the UFC will host 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 will square off as women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey puts her 135-pound strap on the line against Sara McMann. Rousey will step 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, will compete 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 will be a trio of welterweight contests as Rory MacDonald battles Demian Maia, Mike Pyle faces off with T.J. Waldburger, and Stephen Thompson takes on Robert Whittaker.

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

The MMA Corner’s Josh Davis, Jason Schielke and Justin Fuller break down the main card in the live stream above (held on Google Plus) starting at 10 p.m. ET.
