When Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche enter the Octagon tonight (Saturday, Feb. 23) it will be a historic occasion.

Not only will it mark the first time women compete in the UFC, but also the first time a WMMA match highlights a UFC card and the first time a UFC women's title is defended.

That's a lot of firsts, which means the UFC 157 main event could very well signify a pivotal moment in mixed martial arts history. 

An event of this magnitude is not something any fan of the sport should miss, which is why Bleacher Report will have you covered. Check in right here before, during and after tonight's main event for all things Rousey vs. Carmouche.
