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.
*Editor’s Note: This story was subsequently confirmed by the UFC’s official Twitter: Ronda will fight February 23 at the Honda Center – she’ll fight Liz Carmouche in the main event.
