UFC 157: Rousey vs Carmouche Live Odds

UFC 157: Rousey vs Carmouche was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on February 23, 2013 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

The headline bout between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche was the first-ever women's fight in UFC history. The two fought in the newly created 135-pound bantamweight division.

Manny Gamburyan was expected to face Chad Mendes at the event; however, Gamburyan was forced out of the bout with a thumb and elbow injury. Mendes was then pulled from the card as a suitable replacement could not be found on short notice. As a result, the bout between Court McGee and Josh Neer was promoted to the main card.

In the main event of UFC 157, Ronda Rousey overcame a dangerous situation early to finally submit challenger Liz Carmouche with an armbar late in the first round of their UFC women's bantamweight title fight. Carmouche gave Rousey the hardest fight of her short career, taking her back early and trying to sink a choke and crank her neck, but Rousey eventually shook her off, re-adjusted her sports bra, and went to work.

Ronda Rousey vs Liz Carmouche:

Round 1: Referee John McCarthy in the cage for the evening's main event, the first-ever female bout in UFC history. Rousey presses forward and walks through punches to move into the clinch. She wraps the head briefly and looks for the toss. It doesn't come, but she drags Carmouche to the floor.

Carmouche somehow works free and actually moves to the back as Rousey stands. Rousey supporting the full weight as Carmouche is on the back. Carmouche works to get the right hand under the chine. It's not there, but Carmouche cranks the face. Rousey fights through it, shakes her off and resets. Tense moments for the champ.

Rousey stands over her opponent. Two minutes in. Carmouche tries to attack the leg. Rousey spins through it and turns to side control. Carmouche tries to kick her legs high and slip over to the back. Rousey wrapping the head and firing in short left hands. Rousey controlling the position right now, but Carmouche working hard to flip over and reverse the position. Instead, Rousey slips over o mount and sets up the armbar.

Carmouche keeps her hands locked as they roll over. Time ticking down. Rousey trying hard to pull the arm free. She finally does, and Carmouche has to tap. Incredible debut for the ladies.
