The UFC has its third women's bout as Olympian Sara McMann (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and fellow bantamweight Sheila Gaff (10-4-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) have agreed to meet in April at UFC 159.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the planned matchup, which groundandpound.de initially reported.

UFC 159 takes place April 27 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The main card, including a headliner between light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

It's not clear if McMann vs. Gaff will be part of the main card.

great addition to the woman's roster. McMann has a ton of potential.
