Sara McMann has announced her pregnancy on Instagram. McMann last fought in February and lost by second-round submission loss against Marion Reneau at UFC on FOX 28.
She stated on her post that this was perfect timing because she’s recovering from labrum and rotator cuff injuries in both her shoulders. McMann did state that she will return to fight after giving birth.
I’ve been dying to tell the world 🤰🏻❤❤❤ The short story: Chad and I started trying after my last fight and that SOB knocked me up immediately 😄 I’m 12 weeks along! The long version: I’ve had bad shoulder injuries my last 2 fights (torn labrum and rotator cuffs in BOTH shoulders). I have to take time off to get healthy no matter what. I’m 37 and I’m getting too close to the time of possibly not being able to conceive. We decided that it was the right time in all aspects. So, yes I will still be fighting. My body handles pregnancy very well and I am training thru the majority of it. Thanks to everyone who is happy for our happiness 😁😁😁 #ufc #pregnancyannouncement #12weekspregnant #beyondgrateful
