Liz Carmouche Has Nothing to Lose Against Ronda Rousey at UFC 157

Liz Carmouche Has Nothing to Lose Against Ronda Rousey at UFC 157
 

Article By Dave Walsh

UFC 157 marks a historic first for MMA’s premier promotion, as it will host not only its first Women’s MMA fight, but it’s first Championship Women’s MMA fight. Headlining UFC 157 will be former Strikeforce and now UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey against Liz Carmouche. To say that promotion for this fight has been Rousey-centric is an understatement, to say the least. The UFC has done a fair job of promoting both fighters, but to say that Rousey comes into the fight as the clear favorite and that the UFC would have to be pulling for her internally would be putting it lightly.

 

Before Rousey signed with the UFC, she was the Strikeforce’s Women’s Bantamweight Champion and everyone knew that it was just a matter of time until Dana brought her into the UFC fold. Rousey was being trotted around by the UFC as an ambassador for the sport thanks in part to her Olympic Judo credentials as well as her success in the sport of MMA. Rousey has really taken the world by storm in her short tenure as a MMA fighter, taking her first fight in March of 2011 and since then amassing an impressive 6-0 streak with six armbars. Yes, every fight that Rousey has won she has won via armbar.

 

rousey faceRousey has now become the face of Women’s MMA, taking the place of the former Strikeforce fighter, Gina Carano. Carano was, for years, the most popular Women’s MMA fighter not just for her abilities but for her looks as well and proved to be the perfect pin-up girl for the MMA world. After a loss to Cris “Cyborg” Santos Carano has yet to step into the ring again and has instead found a new home in Hollywood, with Rousey quickly filling in the role of the new pin-up girl for Women’s MMA. She followed right in line with what Carano was doing, even posing for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue.

 

It doesn’t hurt that Ronda Rousey has an interesting story to back up her career and her aspirations, as well as rugged good looks and a big attitude to round things out. If you were to watch last week’s episode of UFC Primetime you’d probably notice how.....

It just seems logical from just who their training partners are. Ronda trains with world champions, elite grapplers , men twice her size.

While Liz is training at tacoloco MMA bluebelt center.

LOL cheesesteak- I noticed that huge difference also.

Liz is focused, dedicated, and determined to win... but the massive gap in quality of training will likely show in the cage. Phone Post

It'd be interesting to see if Ronda goes with a different strategy... Even though all her opponents already knew she'd go for a takedown and try to rip their arm off, she was still able to successfully do it. Another armbar would be great, but KOing Liz would be awesome! Phone Post

I think she should keep on going with it. Imagine she closes out her career like 20-0 all by 1st round armbar? She would go down as a true legend of legends.
