Liz Carmouche Looking To Cash In With UFC 157 Main Event Fight

Liz Carmouche knows she has an excellent opportunity ahead of her Saturday night when she steps inside the Octagon against Ronda Rousey.

Competing in a main event of a pay-per-view, Carmouche feels the eventual payday will help provide her a solid base to become an even more involved fighter. The two will compete at UFC 157 from Anaheim.

“I really do hope that this puts me on a different financial level,” said Carmouche, during a recent interview with FightLine.com. “I know that is Dana White’s plan for all of his UFC fighters, so they can focus on fighting and it’s not a concern for them.”

Carmouche (8-2) is a major underdog to the unbeaten Rousey, but she is well-trained and well-focused, being a former member of the military.

Her story on UFC Primetime made a fan out of me, as Carmouche has battled naysayers her entire life. Now, she has a chance to prove them all wrong on the biggest stage ever for women’s MMA.

“Nobody has any expectations (for me in this fight). I really feel that the pressure is all on Ronda,” Carmouche said. “Anything I do is just going to blow everyone away.”
