Ronda Rousey Makes History

Women Fighting

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!

Here is the first part of the Primetime Show to get you amped up for tonight’s main event

    The Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche fight is going to have fireworks. It’s the fight that’s going to elevate women fighting in the octagon to a different level. We can’t wait, although we think another armbar is coming from Rousey.

    ALOT of hype surrounded this fight, and knowing how the females got down during Strikeforce (RIP) for so long I didn’t expect anything less from the warrior princesses. The fact that this fight got more coverage from media outlets like Time Magazine and CNN is even more amazing. I’ve said that MMA is popular and international enuff to be considered a Olympic sport and these ladies might just give them that push if necessary. Seeing Dana White eat his words last night was HILARIOUS! No matter how much money he tried to dispense to buy out Strikeforce he was NEVER going to kill female MMA. This time it wasn’t “If you can’t beat them, buy them out”, it was the ol’ tried and true “If you can’t beat them, join them” technique. Expect to see more hype surrounding the He Man Woman Haterz Club at the UFC with more females bringing more revenue and audiences and excitement, it’s what’s been lacking for awhile.
