UFC 159: Sara McMann vs. Sheila Gaff booked for April 27 in Newark

Tracy Lee/Invicta FC

There's an undefeated women's bantamweight fighter with an Olympic medal coming to the UFC 159 event in New Jersey and no, it's not Ronda Rousey.

Motley Crue said it best: Girls, girls, girls.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has a women's 135-pound champion in the form of Ronda Rousey. Now all it needs is a couple of contenders and it looks like Sara McMann will have a chance to take one of those open slots when she goes to battle against Sheila Gaff.

When and where?

None other than the upcoming UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 27, 2013 from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, according to GroundandPound.de.

McMann (6-0), like Rousey, was an Olympic medalist before transitioning to mixed martial arts (MMA). The 32-year-old bantamweight has three finishes in six wins and was last seen outpointing Shayna Baszler at the Invicta FC 2 event last July.

Can she overcome "The German Tank?"

Gaff (10-4-1) has never been to the scorecards in 10 professional wins, polishing off six of her victims via knockout/technical knockout and the other four by way of submission. The former flyweight is fresh off a first-round shellacking of Jennifer Maia, which took all of 10 seconds to complete.

Scary.

UFC 159 will feature a light heavyweight title fight pitting champion Jon Jones against challenger and fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 coach Chael Sonnen. Bitter 185-pound rivals Michael Bisping vs. Alan Belcher have also been scheduled to hook 'em up in "Dirty Jersey."
