Liz Carmouche Talks UFC Debut

Source: http://wombatsports.wordpress.com/20...men-in-combat/



Quote:
The new policy of women getting some roles in combat has been the topic of much discussion this past week in the news. Many think this is way overdue, and the times have changed to reconsider women’s roles in the world.

Liz Carmouche, who will face UFC champ Ronda Rousey Feb. 23, is a retired Marine and is not only making history as the first openly gay fighter to compete in the UFC; but the first Marine to main event.

Wombat Sports caught up with Carmouche at InvictaFC 4 a few weeks ago to talk about women in combat roles, and her debut in the UFC.


People not giving Carmouche a fair shake in this fight are really not looking close enough at Liz's form over recent years. There have been two losses to Sarah Kaufmann and Marloes Coenen, two of WMMAs finest.

A late replacement against Coenen, Carmouche dictated more of the pace than some had anticipated, even leading on the scorecards going into the 4th round before Coenen clawed back the win from the brink of total disaster with a crafty Triangle Choke.

Liz has dispatched noted WMMA fighters such as Colleen Schneider, Jan Finney, and Kaitlin Young. The "Girl-Rilla" isn't coming into UFC 157 to lay down and take a beating...

...She's coming to play 'Spoiler'.

I think the most intriguing thing is Liz has some serious raw strength. Physically she is a stiffer challenge than anyone Rousey has faced.

I agree but she doesn't have Ronda's submission pedigree. I genuinely think she's a tougher specimen speaking physically but she'll lose to Ronda's technique.


/not even a Ronda fan, real talk

Liz says she's been gameplanning for a Ronda Rousey fight for over a year, hopefully we'll see her push Rousey into the championship rounds.
