UFC 157: 3 Reasons to Root for Liz Carmouche to Defeat Ronda Rousey
Esther Lin/Invicta FC

History will be made at UFC 157 when Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche collide in the first-ever women's MMA bout in UFC history. It will also mark the first time women have headlined a UFC pay-per-view and should gain a lot of attention from the media.

Rousey comes into the bout as the clear favorite and for good reason. Rousey is 6-0 with all of her bouts ending via armbar in the first round. She's appeared to be unstoppable given her submission prowess to go along with her Olympic-level judo.

Attempting to stop the hype train will be Carmouche, a tough-as-nails fighter who has seen her place among the women's rankings jump after two straight victories.

Although the UFC will undoubtedly be rooting for its superstar Rousey to win, MMA fans have plenty of reasons to root for the underdog Carmouche.
