UFC 157 results: Ronda Rousey worried about sports bra as much as Liz Carmouche

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey had more than opponent Liz Carmouche to worry about in their UFC 157 bout. She was also worried about a possible wardrobe malfunction.


Ronda Rousey proved to UFC fans that she's a force to be reckoned with by pulling off a first-round armbar victory over Liz Carmouche late in the first round of their UFC 157 main event fight. Rousey was in a bit of trouble early in the bout for a couple of reasons though. One was the fact that Carmouche was on her back hunting for a choke. The other was a the threat of a wardrobe malfunction. Rousey explained the situation to Ariel Helwani on Fuel's UFC 157 post-fight show:

"I was thinking about my bra, actually. I kept thinking, I didn't order this one myself, so they gave me my weigh in bra for the fight. If you look back, I was adjusting myself at one point while she was on my back. Multitasking!"

She also went into more detail about the whole UFC experience, and the fight itself:

"I was trying just to ignore everything until I was out there. It was weird. I was in there just yesterday so it felt like a familiar place. It didn't seem odd at all. I think I was less nervous. I think I was most nervous for the Julia Budd fight, way back, I don't know why I was so nervous for that one. On the ground I feel so comfortable. I don't ever feel like I'm in danger, so I don't mind taking a lot of risks. I felt fine with her on my back, I was thinking more about keeping my sports bra up while she is trying to choke me. I felt very safe and in control even though it didn't look like that."

Rousey (7-0) is expected to face the winner of the Cat Zingano-Miesha Tate bout for her next title defense.
