Ronda Rousey Makes History
Ronda Rousey versus Liz Carmouche is not only the first ever women’s fight in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, it is also the main event of tonight’s spectacular UFC 157. Rousey has received a lot of attention in the media recently, and giants like CNN and Sports Illustrated has taken an interest in the charismatic armbar machine. All though there are plenty of people who oppose female Mixed Martial Arts, it seems like Ronda is definitely bringing in new fans, taking the sport to a whole other level.
I was a sceptic when I first heard about Ronda’s move to the UFC, but I have to admit that her fights are as entertaining as any male fights out there. Rousey is a former Olympian in Judo, and her skills on the ground are just amazing. She has finished 6 out of 6 opponents with armbars, and Liz Carmouche is going to have to keep it standing if she is going to have any chance of winning the title. There are other great fights on the card in Anaheim today though, and Dan Henderson vs Lyoto Machida is a must see for any MMA fan. But it is the female main event that has the city has buzzing about tonight’s event!
