Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE
UFC matchmaker Joe Silva isn't taking any days off this holiday season as yet another UFC 157 match-up hit the wire earlier today. See who's getting down and dirty at the Honda Center in February.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has gone hog wild today in stacking its UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche" fight card and line up, adding Dennis Bermudez vs. Matt Grice to the Feb. 23, 2013 pay-per-view (PPV) event at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
Calm down, bros.
Bermudez (9-3) failed to capture the "six-figure contract" in The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 finale, but got a job inside the Octagon anyway, where he rebounded from a submission loss to season winner Diego Brandao by outpointing Pablo Garza at UFC on FOX 3 before strangling Tommy Hayden at UFC 150.
Can "The Menace" make it three in a row?
Grice (15-4) was blown out of the water by Erik Koch in his Octagon return at UFC on Versus 4; however, he was able to shake it off and get back into the win column by out-barfighting Leonard Garcia at UFC on FX 3 earlier this year in Ft. Lauderdale.
Can he prove he is indeed "The Real One" at 145 pounds?
UFC 157 will make history as the promotion's first-ever female champion, bantamweight badass Ronda Rousey, puts her 135-pound title on the line against ex-Strikeforce contender Liz Carmouche. Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson are also rumored to be squaring off in light heavyweight action.
