UFC 157 takes place on Saturday, Feb. 23, from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. When the bright lights are turned on, all eyes will be fixed on women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey when she makes her promotional debut against Liz Carmouche in the main event.
Not only does this mark the first female championship bout in the history of the UFC but also the first time that an openly gay fighter has competed with the organization.
The main card also features former world champions and title contenders from multiple divisions competing in important matchups. Without any further ado, let's take a look at one of the most historically meaningful events of 2013.
