The two women will do battle in the main event of UFC 157 which will take place on February 23rd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The co-main event will feature a light heavyweight bout between former champions Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida.
The “UFC Primetime: Rousey vs. Carmouche” series will initially air on February 8th on FUEL TV at midnight ET. The three part series will conclude with part two on February 15th and part three on February 22nd, with both episodes also airing at midnight ET.
The UFC Primetime series are often reserved for the UFC’s most high profile PPV stars like Georges St. Pierre and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.
UFC 157 will mark the first time that women will fight in the UFC, and the UFC hopes that Ronda Rousey will become a legitimate PPV draw.
