Default UFC 157 - Rousey vs. Carmouche

This weekend is the first ever UFC fight featuring not only women, but a women's title bout as the main event.
Rhonda is a Bronze medalist in women's Judo and she's a fkn bad ass. She has arm barred everyone she's fought within the first round.
Liz Carmouche was relatively unknown until she begged for this fight and got it. She's an ex-military lesbian, trying to shock the world and make a name for herself.
I was already a fan of Rousey, but these behind the scene biographies they do of the fighters, really made me like Carmouche as well.


Here's a highlight of Rhonda

Did you see the "Real Sports" piece on Rousey?

It is really hard not to like this woman.
She's honest calls it like she sees it.. wants to kick Kim Kartrashians ass and has a cool story. Doesn't hurt that she's kind of hot and can kick ass...

Havent seen it yet. Just tried to locate it online but no luck.

She has a very good backstory and she's genuine and humble. Hard not to like her.
I think Rhonda is going to win easily, but I'm hoping that Carmouche puts up a good fight

I really thought Carmouche had her when she was on Rousy's back as standing. Especially after the earlier fight when that happened.

But shit - 19 seconds left!!!!

I read about it before I watched it and didnt believe it could be that good of a fight, if it only went one round, but it was.
A back and forth fight for almost 5 full minutes, until Rhonda managed to pull off her signature move, just as the round was about to be over.
