UFC 157 extended video preview for 'Rousey vs Carmouche' on Feb. 23 in Anaheim

UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche" is little more than one week away, which means that it's time to take an extended look at the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event that features the first-ever female mixed martial arts (MMA) match inside the Octagon between 135-pound champion Ronda Rousey and No. 1 division contender Liz Carmouche.

Feb. 23, 2013, will mark a "gigantic" moment in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) history, according to ringside announcer Joe Rogan.

What's so special? Ronda Rousey.

"Rowdy" will lead the female invasion of the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's Octagon, defending her 135-pound world title for the first time ever in the first-ever women's match in UFC history against the first openly gay fighter on its roster, Liz Carmouche, and her army of "Lizbos."

Holy firsts!

UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche," a pay-per-view (PPV) fight card that will emanate from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., will also showcase a potential No. 1 Light Heavyweight contender match when former 205-pound champion Lyoto Machida battles storied veteran Dan Henderson in the co-main event of the evening.

That's not all.

Former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) kingpin Urijah Faber will also be in main card action, taking on the venerable Ivan Menjivar in what promises to be an up-and-down, fast-paced scrappy Bantamweight brouhaha. This showdown is not included in the embedded video preview; however, it has all the potential to be a show stealer.
