Next month's UFC 157 event and the first-ever UFC women's bout and title fight will get the "UFC Primetime" treatment on FX and FUEL TV.

The three-part "UFC Primetime: Rousey vs. Carmouche" series debuts Friday, Feb. 8, at midnight ET (9 p.m. PT) on FUEL TV. It previews the upcoming title fight between newly named UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and challenger Liz Carmouche (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

The final two episodes of the three-part series debut in the same timeslot each week.

less thna 40k people will watch it on fuel...  11am saturday morning and 2 am sunday morning isnt a great slot on FX.

tuf on tuesday is a good slot but the downside to that is it would mean primetime would likely not get a good slot and good lead in with ufc programming.

FS1 cant come fast enough.

I'm not familiar with the FX schedule but wouldn't it be a good idea to put it on before TUF?

Will the guys from 'Sons of Anarchy' make an appearance to show us Ronda is a Hollywood A-lister? Phone Post

I can't wait for Rousey vs Carpetmunche to be over. Ridiculous this is a main event, let alone on the main card at all.

Im sure every guy at every bar in America can't wait to root on Team LizBo.

Yep.

We need to remember that the bulk of sports fans are straight males who don't enjoy women's sports or seeing women getting lumped up.

They definitely won't give two damns about a lesbian mixed martial artist just like they don't give a damn about WNBA players.

Ronda isn't Brock no matter what Dana tries and this shoving it down everyone's throats is steeped in arrogance and ignorance.

Joe SixPack doesn't want to watch women unless they are hot, looking sexy and playing up the cheesecake side.

That guy isn't ready for a mouthy Rousey or Liz Carmouche and that may not be PC but it's correct.

This one dies on the vine but until then it will get hyped like it's UFC 100 all over again.

I mean, did ya know Ronda is like a Diaz brother? Phone Post

I'll watch the fight, of course. And I'll probably watch the Primetime special. I like Rousey a lot, idk why. And for some reason I find myself strongly disliking Carmouche. I think it's because they're hyping her only for the "openly gay" fighter and "former Marine."
It's like that if that guy from TUF that did gay porn and Brian Stann rolled into one person. Phone Post

It's like someone just let all the air out of the balloon.

So much for the Rhonda Rousey show and WMMA, headlining Rousey vs Carmouche over Henderson was just too much.

Now a primetime, this is the straw that broke the camel's back.

Remember when Dana said women in the UFC could last a year or a decade? I think if that happens the ladies won't be around in 2014.

I hope Carmouche flying knee KO's her from the start, Dana's face would be a picture Phone Post
