UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche fight card shaping up

The first women's bout in UFC history will take place on February 23rd in the Honda Center in Anaheim, Californa. UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will defend her belt against challenger Liz Carmouche in the main event. The UFC is taking a gamble by putting this fight in the main event spot in my opinion, so they're going to need to stack the card to suck people in. And they've done a pretty good job so far.

It appears that the co-main event will be a light heavyweight bout between Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson, which could decide who meets the winner of Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen next. Also featured on the card is California favorite Urijah Faber, facing off with Ivan Menjivar. Here's a look at how the early card stands right now:

Feb 23rd, live on PPV from Anaheim, CA:

Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche
Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida
Urijah Faber vs. Ivan Menjivar
Lavar Johnson vs. Brendan Schaub
Neil Magny vs. Jon Manley
