UFC 157 fight card: Rousey vs. Carmouche

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

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.

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, and the UFC return of Robbie Lawler as he faces off with Josh Koscheck. Here's a look at how the card stands right now:
