UFC 157 'Primetime' LIVE discussion thread for 'Rousey vs. Carmouche' on FUEL TV (Episode 1)

UFC

UFC 157 "Primetime" is back for "Rousey vs. Carmouche" tonight on FUEL TV and you can join your mixed martial arts (MMA) brethren right here on MMAmania.com to discuss the show as it unfolds.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back with its gritty documentary style series for the first-ever women's 135-pound championship title fight at UFC 157.

The promotion kicks off its three-part "Primetime" series TONIGHT at midnight ET (9 p.m. PT) on FUEL TV to feature the Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche bantamweight championship showdown, which headlines the Feb. 23, 2013 pay-per-view (PPV) event at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

But why watch it alone when you can join your fellow Maniacs for a LIVE discussion in the comments section below?

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, "Girl-Rilla" is still a massive underdog heading into "The Heart of Orange County."
