UFC 157 poster pic for Ronda Rousey vs Liz Carmouche fight on Feb. 23 in Anaheim

Check out the early poster pic for the UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche" event set for Sat., Feb. 23, 2012, headlined by Ronda Rousey taking on Liz Carmouche in the first women's fight in Octagon history.

There it is, folks. History is made.

When the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) invades the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, on Sat., Feb. 23, 2012, it will do so with its UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche" event.

Yes, that's Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche, which currently doubles as both the first women's fight and first women's title fight to ever take place inside the Octagon. It's a testament to the rising star of the "Rowdy" one.

Or UFC President Dana White's crush on her. Whatever. Here's the pic in full:


This poster was passed along by Rousey herself on Twitter, but it seems a bit bare. Indeed, preliminary poster art often features only the main event while later editions can, and usually do, include undercard bouts. That would be a smart play for this show because the undercard features a light heavyweight battle pitting Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida, the winner of which could be looking at a 205-pound title bout against the winner of Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen next April.

Other fights announced for the card include Urijah Faber vs. Ivan Menjivar and Brendan Schaub vs. Lavar Johnson.
