UFC 170 video: Sara McMann downplays 'ring rust' ahead of Ronda Rousey title fight on Feb. 22 in Las Vegas

Put that oil can away, Dorothy, she's got this.

"When you've done something for that long, you could wake me up in the middle of the night and tell me to hit something and I would hit it. It's so many years and so much muscle memory. That's like saying 'Well, if this fighter gets injured, will they not come back being that person?' No. Maybe if they were just starting out and only doing it for a couple of months, but I don't experience that in wrestling and I don't experience it in fighting."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight number one contender, Sara McMann, has been wrestling for almost 20 years, winning a silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics to hang alongside her world championship medals in 2003, 2005 and 2007. In addition, she's a perfect 9-0 in mixed martial arts (MMA) after two amateur and seven professional fights across the span of three years. Simply put, she's been competing for most of her life and will not be affected by her extended absence heading into her UFC 170 main event opposite fellow Olympian Ronda Rousey (staredown), which takes place on Feb. 22, 2014 inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada (more on that here). Anyone care to disagree?
