Liz Carmouche asks Dana White for first title shot at Ronda Rousey


The always awesome Aaron Tru caught up with the always awesome Liz Carmouche, who is asking UFC President Dana White to let her have the first shot at Female UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.

Highlight from the interview include:
•I want to be a part of history, in the UFC, fighting Ronda Rousey for the title.
•There are hurdles and adversity I have gone through that people haven’t - Ronda hasn’t experienced the difficulties of my life and never will.
•I had a chance once against Marloes…I may have lost, but it was a learning experience…I’m ready for a championship bout again.
•I train non stop all the time…that dedication has to be there…this is a way of life.
•Ronda is not a person whose submisisons you can power out of; I have to use traditional escapes or not get caught in the first place.
•I have teammates jump my back and arm bar me, because I didn’t have a mom like Ronda who would wake me up with an arm bar.
•Carmouche also agrees with Rousey about having as much sex as possible prior to a fight; citing that sex will naturally lower your estrogen level, while increasing your testosterone.
•Liz credits her Coach Manny for coming up with Team Lizbo….The Lizbo fan base is strong.

???????????Cyborg can't grapple with her either, Cyborg's only chance is her striking.

WMMA is young, you can't expect it to be stacked. You also can't expect more women to get in to the sport while it languishes as a side show in bottom feeding orgs. No one asked about records or rankings in the early days of MMA either. People got in to the ring and fought to determine that. Who cares what Carmouche did in her last 4 fights, all that's going to matter is what she does in her next one. She'll determine whether she belongs in the octagon or not when she fights. Not by some MMMAth or all this #1 contender ranking garbage. Like you said, the talent pool isn't deep enough so obviously you're not going to have the female Anderson Silva fighting the female Vitor Belfort. You're going to have Tank Abbot vs. Mark Kerr for a few years.
