MMA Junkie brought word of the "Primetime" series for UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche"
Air dates and times on FUEL TV are as follows:
Episode 1: Fri., Feb. 8, 2013, at 12 p.m. ET
Episode 2: Fri., Feb. 15, 2013, at 12 p.m. ET
Episode 3: Fri., Feb. 22, 2013, at 12 p.m. ET
Replays of each episode will air on FX the following Saturdays at 11 a.m. ET/PT and Sunday at 2 a.m. ET/PT.
Rousey (6-0) has electrified the world of combat sports with her devastating ground game, ending all six of her professional MMA fights by way of first-round submission (armbar). In addition, she tore through the amateur ranks, needing less than two minutes (combined) to end all three of her fights.
But don't expect her opponent to be intimidated.
Carmouche (7-2) is a Marine Corps combat veteran and no stranger to title fights, having done the dance with Marloes Coenen under the Strikeforce banner in early 2011. She's coming off back-to-back-wins (and finishes) over Ashleigh Curry and Kaitlin Young for Invicta FC.
Nevertheless, expect "Girl-Rilla" to be a massive underdog come fight night.
The UFC hype machine will be in full effect for the landmark event on Feb. 23 and you can be sure the upcoming edition of "Primetime" will be one of the best yet.
