Congrats to Ronda again for breaking barriers (first ever female fight in UFC history)! I love this! I used to train with a former UFC fighter and always wanted to do what she’s doing! Ronda Rousey has signed a contract to fight at a Main UFC event in February.
According to TMZ:
Sources tell TMZ 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.
The fight is set to go down on Feb. 23 in Anaheim, CA at UFC 157
