04:08 PM ET 12.07 | Sara McMann, the Olympic silver medalist and elite bantamweight MMA fighter, is denying through her manager she was offered a fight with Ronda Rousey and declined it. UFC President Dana White suggested at the UFC on FOX 5 presser that both McMann and Miesha Tate denied opportunities to face Rousey for the UFC women's bantamweight title. "Our contract says she is still with Strikeforce," McMann's manager Monte Cox said. "We never got that phone call. So, I don't know where this is all coming from."
