Confirmed: Rousey vs. Carmouche set for UFC 157 main event


Ronda Rousey has signed a contract to fight in the MAIN EVENT at UFC 157 in February ... the first ever female fight in UFC history ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the 25-year-old Olympic medalist will step in the ring with 28-year-old Liz Carmouche ... a highly-ranked MMA badass who served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Rousey was named UFC champion (female 135 lbs division) when she signed with the organization -- and her belt will be up for grabs.

^ 8 girls and 8 boys would probably pull  better numbers and create more drama.

Ronda snaps Carmouche's arm. And then I have a feeling they might do Ronda/Cyborg TUF with girls. Or at least that's what I would do.

What do you want from him?He tried to get Cyborg, Tito told her no. Tate wanted time off and McMann turned the fight down.Dana himself said they will stack the card so before you complain about the card, least wait for the fights to be announced.
