UFC 157 Primetime: Rousey vs. Carmouche - Episode 1
 
This one invokes some serious emotions. At first I thought it should be the co-main event, but you know what they're fighting for peanuts compared to their male counterparts. The only way to elevate them is to give them the main event status. So good luck to both fighters. Each have their own story to tell.

Quality.

Ronda got about 18 minutes of the 22.

They are on their way to renaming it RFC the Rousey Fighting Championships

Immediately what I thought. Might as well be called "UFC Primetime presents Ronda Rousey".
Hoping the underdog pulls off the upset in this one.

It's really pathetic how obsessed Dana White is with Ronda Rousey. I hope Liz Carmouche submits Rousey with an armbar!

I'd like to see ronda win, if only just to give the women's division a chance In the ufc

He and the UFC are capitalizing on a hot commodity and milking it while they can. Welcome to Business 101.

Was I the only one who kinda felt for Ronda. Too bad they only did a five minute segment on Carmouche though. I like her backstory, similar to a lot of up and coming fighters.

I'm waiting for the return of Lyoto vs Hendo. I need to know if this guy can get KOed or not. He's one of the only fighters in the history of the sport who has not been KOed or TKOed.

That was intense. Ronda's story about her father is heartbreaking. The fact that she recognizes what they are trying to do with the story and doesn't feel right about speaks volumes about her character.

edit: Oh and I timed how much airtime Liz got for fun. 4:09 of the 21:40. So less than a quarter of the airtime.

I'm starting to notice a lot of similarities in terms of the UFC cashing in on a hot commodity between Ronda and Brock.

I like Ronda. But WMMA at least right now is a joke.

The whole division is centered around 1 fighter. They show a couple minutes of her opponent. Ronda loses and the division is toast. But she won't lose to Lizzy.

I'm a big Hendo fan. But I'm not that excited for this matchup. Maybe Machida pulls something off like a front kick to the face. But he could also run around the cage for 2 of the 3 rounds like he did vs. Rampage.
