Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche Signed For UFC 157 Main Event

UFC president Dana White has announced that Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche will headline UFC 157.


Rousey won’t be fighting Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, as Wednesday’s rumor had her meeting. Instead, Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be meeting Liz Carmouche (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) as the first defense of her new UFC women’s bantamweight title at UFC 157 in February.

UFC 157 takes place Feb. 23 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Rousey vs. Carmouche will be the main event of the card, which will air on pay-per-view, FX and Facebook.

Rousey said receiving her UFC championship belt and having the fight announced on the heels of a press conference for Saturday’s card, which features Benson Henderson’s lightweight title defense against Nate Diaz, came as a surprise to her.
