Big news coming out of the UFC 168 post-fight press conference (watch it here).

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White announced that UFC Women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will defend her title against Olympic Silver medalist Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 22, 2014.

This will be a quick turn around for Rousey who defended her title against Miesha Tate in the co-main event of UFC 168 last night (Dec. 28, 2013) in Las Vegas, Nevada (see the video highlights here). Rousey spent most of her fight camp filming the Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7 (details).

The co-main event of UFC 170 is set to be a light heavyweight match up between Rashad Evans and Daniel Cormier (more on that here). While it hasn't been discussed outwardly, a win for Cormier will likely put him in the discussions for a title fight against Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.
