Prospect Catch: Who is Sara McMann?

Sherdog reported earlier today that world class female wrestler Sara McMann has signed a three-fight deal with Strikeforce.

McMann is an accomplished freestyle wrestler who owns one Olympic silver, two world silvers, two world bronze medals, and three national championships to her name. Last year she made the transition from freestyle wrestling to grappling, qualifying for the USA Grappling team, and placing first in the women's 63 kg. (138.75 lbs.) weight class at the FILA World Grappling Championships. No official date or opponent have been reported for McMann's first fight, but she expects to debut sometime in February. McMann will compete in the women's 135 lb. weight division in which Dutch submission specialist Marloes Coenen is champion. Her Strikeforce debut will also be her debut as a professional fighter.
