Newly-crowned UFC women’s bantamweight champion and Olympic medalist in judo, Ronda Rousey made history when she became the first woman to sign with the promotion. Rousey became the face of women’s MMA on her journey to become the Strikeforce 135-pound champion, winning all six of her professional MMA bouts in the first round via armbar. Only former champion, Miesha Tate lasted longer than the minute mark in the opening round.
Liz Carmouche has earned to right to spoil Rousey’s entrance to the UFC on the heels of a two-fight win streak. Carmouche has back-to-back stoppage victories against Ashleigh Curry and Kaitlin Young under the all-women’s MMA promotion, Invicta FC.
