McMann Faces Eye in Vegas on May 29

 

Top ten bantamweight contenders square off in the Octagon this Memorial Day weekend, as Olympic Silver medalist Sara McMann battles Jessica Eye in UFC Fight Night action at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on May 29.

The card, which airs on FOX Sports 1, is headlined by the bantamweight showdown between unbeatens Thomas Almeida and Cody Garbrandt.

A former world title challenger, the number six-ranked McMann owns UFC victories over Sheila Gaff and Lauren Murphy, and after losing a close majority decision to Miesha Tate in January of 2015, McMann has her sights set on a future rematch. Looking to shake off losses to Tate and Julianna Pena, Ohio's Eye believes her striking will give her the edge in his return to Vegas this May.
