With one chance left to win big in UFC, a single mother lays bare her losses

By Roman Stubbs, Washington Post
“Whether I win or lose a fight, I go back home and I ask myself a basic question, and that is: Do you still want to do this? And are you capable of it?” she said. “I know what I want to do and I know I’m capable of doing it.”
 
McMann has not yet told her daughter about everything she has been through, about her difficult upbringing, about Jason or Steven. She doesn’t know when that day will come, but for now, she wants to enjoy moments like these. Soon she would be back to work on a punching bag at Alliance, preparing to position herself for her title dream. She allowed her daughter to stay at school with her friends that afternoon, knowing that in a few short weeks they would say goodbye to this place and begin their cross-country trip to start a new life.
