Liz Carmouche: Message to UFC President Dana White & Ronda Rousey WMMA star Liz Carmouche has nothing but respect for the first ever Female UFC Champion Ronda Rousey. In the video below, shot by Aaron Tru and Adrian Gallegos from MMAprime.tv, Carmouche credits Rousey for the inception of women into the Ultimate Fighting Championship. However, Carmouche does go on to say that she is the #1 contender at 135lbs and has earned the privileged of fighting Rousey for the title, when women compete for the first time inside of the Octagon.
Freshly crowned Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate hits the town with her title wrapped firmly around her waist after winning it from Marloes Coenen with a fourth round submission last night at the "Fedor vs. Henderson" event in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Tate is expected to defend her title next against Sarah Kaufman, who defeated Liz Carmouche at Strikeforce Challengers 17 on July 22.
