Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hits "The Heart of Orange County" for the first time since Nov. 2011 as UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche" goes down this Saturday night (Feb. 2, 2013) from Anaheim, California.

The first-ever women's Bantamweight championship bout serves as the main event as Ronda Rousey puts her 135-pound belt on the line for the first time against Liz Carmouche. Several other intriguing mixed martial arts (MMA) match ups are scheduled for the pay-per-view (PPV) main card, featuring the likes of Dan Henderson, Lyoto Machida, Urijah Faber, Josh Koscheck and more.

With the event just days away and anticipation growing for the historic PPV event, let's take a few minutes to review some event-related facts about UFC 157.

Check them out:

1.) Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche is the first PPV main event in ZUFFA-era UFC history where both fighters will make their Octagon debuts.

2.) After winning four of his first five UFC fights by decision, four of Lyoto Machida's last five UFC victories are by knockout.

3.) Faber has rebounded from every loss in his career with a submission victory. He has also never lost two-straight fights.
