The UFC may soon have a second female fighter under contract.

This past week UFC President Dana White confirmed Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has signed with the UFC and will is now the organization's first female UFC titleholder.

Now, Olympian and submission-grappling standout Sara McMann (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) said she may not be far behind.

"Everyone keeps asking me if I am in the @UFC," McMann wrote via Twitter. "All I know is that it is 'in the works.' Thank you for your support :)"

I think Sara makes a great fight for Rousey in her UFC debut. I personally think Ronda gets the arm bar in this fight to, but you never know with this sport.

I agree with this..

Also this might end up the type of fight that Dana absolutely hates...
Sara could possibly lay and pray for 5 rounds and steal a decision...especially with her wrestling credentials...

Me too, although i think her first fight will be a Miesha Tate rematch.
