The UFC made it clear bantamweight star Ronda Rousey was an important asset last month by handing her a headlining slot at UFC 157 despite having never fought inside the Octagon before. Furthering their support of the unbeaten champion, the organization has also decided to feature Rousey’s clash with Liz Carmouche on UFC Primetime.
Past versions of the long-running series have featured the likes of Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones, Georges St-Pierre, and Anderson Silva. The first episode is slated to air at 12:00 AM EST/9:00 PM PST on February 8 with subsequent shows on February 15 and February 22.
UFC 157 is scheduled to take place on February 23 in Anaheim, California. Rousey’s meeting with Carmouche marks the first female match-up in UFC history.
