Ronda Rousey BOOKS 1ST UFC FIGHT -- Main Event at UFC 157


We've known for a few weeks that Strikeforce women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey would be coming over the UFC. Now, according to a report from TMZ, we know when and against whom.

If the report is true, Rousey will make her UFC debut against Liz Carmouche in the headliner of UFC 157 in Anaheim, California on February 23, 2013. So far the other fights expected to be on that card are a Light Heavyweight #1 contenders bout between Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida and a Bantamweight bout between Urijah Faber and Ivan Menjivar.

Liz is a decent fighter, but she will most likely suffer than same fate as everyone else,

R1 Rouseybar

It's a shame there is that beef with Golden Glory, Coenen would have been a better opponent.

I think this is great news for Dan Henderson that his fight with Machida is for 3 rounds and not 5.

at Dana lookin at that ass

1. funny to me that Liz was the only one who wanted this fight (Ariel tweeted Dana said this earlier)
2. i would much prefer Carmouche vs Cyborg for a shot at the champ, but i don't expect the UFC to make much sense w/ WMMA any time soon.

That's a great point!




I thought the best way to break Rousey into the UFC, would have been on a Fox card.

This shouldn't be the main event just because it could end so quickly.

Their faces are priceless. They all look board to hell at what she is saying. Benson is in a Daze. Diaz looks like he is about to fall asleep. Whoever is next to Diaz is looking at the ceiling. HAHAHA

disagree. w/ that logic, we don't need Velasquez/JDS II as a ME either

This is a decent bout to kick off the female division
I'm glad they quit waiting around for Cyborg.
