After four straight weeks of shows for Strikeforce and the UFC, Zuffa relaxes this week before returning next week in London.

But after that, get ready for a strong assault leading up to the hotly anticipated start of the women's era in the UFC.

"UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche" takes place at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Feb. 23. The main event is the first women's fight in UFC history as Ronda Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) puts her new UFC women's bantamweight title on the line against Liz Carmouche (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC). In the co-main event, Dan Henderson (29-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) meets Lyoto Machida (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC). Also on the card, "The California Kid," Urijah Faber (26-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC), will feel the home-state love against Ivan Menjivar (25-9 MMA, 4-1 UFC).

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)
Champ Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche - for women's bantamweight title

Happy to see Lawler back in the UFC, but just horrible matchmaking here from Joe Silva with Koscheck. People want to see Lawler stand and bang, someone like Leben or Jared Hamman, even Cote before he dropped to WW

my buddy who usually springs for the PPV events says he refuses to order this card because he doesn't think "a couple cunts" should headline a UFC. Oh did i mention my buddy is a complete idiot. I hope he stays true to his words because i'd rather watch this card with my PG fam in the surprise van ye yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Only been 3 times I didn't order a ppv in ten years.2 because I went live.1 because I was extremely broke.I'm pretty sure I'm not going to buy this one. Reason is it has 2 things againstt it

1. The Suter shitty as f@ck main event. To me the only mma fight I want to see is Cyborg kill the Rusty hype train. Anything else could be a fuel card fight or Facebook fight.even that one.

2.this is 2 ppv in a month and I want to watch Diaz gsp over anything this card has to offer.

Agreed. Koscheck is a terrible fight for him. I really wish they made Leben vs. Lawler.

Ronda for the ladies
Uriah for the casual fan
Lyoto V Dan for the real mma fans
& a whole bunch of cruddy fights

I know they are trying to tap new markets but this card does little to excite me other than Dan Lyoto.

Yup. Don't know why he's fighting Kos and don't know why he is fighting at 170. He maybe one and done.

Damn I forgot this was at 170. Then the Cote fight would a been perfect for Lawler

I'm actually pretty excited for this card, love watching Rousey fight, and Carmouche is tough. but I don't see her having any chance of not getting arm bared.
Plus some of my favs with Mendes, Lawler, Schaub and Hendo and I'll give this card a buy
