Sara McMann, former UFC title contender joins Bellator

After almost ten years with the UFC, the former UFC title challenger and Olympic silver medalist has signed a multi-fight contract with Bellator.

McMann (13-6) is expected to compete as a featherweight after moving up a division. It is unknown when she will make her Bellator debut.

Following an initial report from Ariel Helwani on Tuesday, McMann explained her decision in a social media statement shortly after the news surfaced (via Instagram).

She wrote: "After a lot of consideration and negotiation, I’ve decided to fight for Bellator in the featherweight division."

McMann last appeared in a fight in March, when she decisively defeated Karol Rosa at UFC on ESPN 33. That was her only match in 2022.
