Dana White made it very clear a couple of years ago that women would never fight inside the UFC octagon. Not only did Dana make a division for the women of mma, but he brought in Ronda Rousey, made her the first women’s champ without fighting once, and now put her into the main event in her UFC debut.
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will defend her title against Liz Carmouche. Even if the fight ends the way Rousey ends fights, it should still be a war, and you can bet it will get some good PPV buys.
Also on the card, is a highly anticipated fight between light heavyweights Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida. The winner hopes to be No. 1 contender for the winner between Jones and Sonnen, but might have to face another top prospect in Alexander Gustafsson first.
The event’s main card airs on pay-per-view only.
