There is a lot of attention in this fight, according to the UFC this chick Rousey is the new sensation in the business.
“This is without a doubt, the most media attention we’ve ever had leading up to a fight. And when I talk about media attention, I’m talking about big time media”, UFC president Dana White said.
“She blows (Brock Lesnar) out of the water,” said White. “No fighter has ever fought in the UFC that has had more attention than she has. It’s a fact.”
Liz Carmouche is listed as a long shot at+700 to win the clash, but she’s just honor to be in this contest as she looks for the upset.
“To be closeted for so long was so difficult. I never planned to be in the place I am today, but for it to have fallen into place is an honor. I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback and support. I want to be somebody they can look up to so that they can come out.”
