“I’m the first ever openly lesbian UFC fighter and I never expected that it was gonna be a big deal,” Carmouche said during a segment of UFC Ultimate Insider. “It’s just me; I was just trying to be myself and not hide anymore.
“I never thought that I would go from being so sheltered and so closet in the Marine Corps to being the spokesperson for the LGBT community.”
Although she has found this new role in her life, Carmouche’s focus remains on Rousey and what it’s going to take to be the first fighter to defeat her.
