McMann

Davis

After the UFC announced Miesha Tate versus Cat Zingano on April 13, the UFC announced two more fighters who have signed to the promotion.

InvictaFC vets Alexis Davis and Sara McMann bring the total of UFC female bantamweight fighters to six according to the UFC conference call on Tuesday. Davis (13-5) is coming over a submission win over Shayna Baszler at InvictaFC 4 in January, while the undefeated McMann (6-0) got a decision win over Baszler at InvictaFC 2 this past July. All six fighters will be at the UFC 157 media events next week. No word on when either will make their UFC debuts.

Also on the call, UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey stated she would be in attendance for the upcoming Tate versus Zingano bout April 13, and would be more than happy to face the winner. Rousey admitted she has had her eye on the undefeated Zingano for a while.
