A detailed look at how the ground grappling tendencies of UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey and challenger Sara McMann match up.

This Saturday at UFC 170 Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey will face Sara McMann in an anticipated title match. It isn't just a match up of elite fighters, but one of Olympic medalist grapplers. Ronda Rousey was the first American to medal in Judo with bronze in 2008 and Sara McMann, who was a silver medalist in the first Summer Games to feature Women's Wrestling in 2004.

The BJJ Scout takes a detailed look at McMann's posture on the ground in both MMA and grappling competitions, noting a key detail that she is not often on her toes, which greatly decreases her ability to pass guard and defend against submissions from the guard.

He then examines Ronda's evolving top game, specifically focused on her guard passing, highlight areas were Ronda is adding to her game.
