Extra! Extra! Read all about it! History will be made at UFC 157 this Saturday night in Anaheim!
I'm sure you've heard by now that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is set to "make history" this weekend when Ronda Rousey puts her Women's Bantamweight title on the line against Liz Carmouche in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event on Feb. 23, 2013.
You want to talk history? Let's talk history.
Before the "Rowdy" one ever stepped foot inside the cage, Gina Carano became the face of women's mixed martial arts (MMA) by racking up a perfect 7-0 record before her loss to "Cyborg" Santos. "Conviction" gets some love in the above video but someone -- and something -- is left out.
Scott Coker and Strikeforce.
They were the stateside pioneers of women's MMA and had the first female main event when "Carano vs. Cyborg" aired on Showtime back in 2009. Coker is nowhere to be seen in the historical look at the sport's lethal ladies, but I suppose history has to be re-written.
Who does the writing this weekend? Rousey or Carmouche?
