UFC Primetime: Rousey vs. Carmouche Debuts Thursday on FSN


UFC Primetime Rousey vs CarmoucheRonda Rousey and Liz Carmouche are getting ready to make history on several fronts at UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche on Feb. 23 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Rousey is already the first UFC women’s champion. Their fight will also be the first women’s bout under the UFC banner, and as such, is obviously the first women’s bout to headline an event as well.

In short, there’s a lot of pressure on them to produce, particularly on Rousey, who has the entire weight of the entry of women’s mixed martial arts into the Octagon.

With the magnitude of the fight, Rousey and Carmouche are getting the Primetime treatment.

Fans on Thursday night get an all-access pass inside their training camps before the historic championship bout, as episode one of UFC Primetime: Rousey vs. Carmouche premieres on FSN.
