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
McMann also states that she will still be fighting— training through most of her pregnancy.
Congratulations to Sara and her family!
