Liz Carmouche doesn’t appear to be the type of fighter that would ever take an extended vacation.
Carmouche lost to Ronda Rousey last month in the first-ever UFC female fight, as Rousey successfully defended her UFC bantamweight title.
Now, as the promotion continues to push women’s MMA, it has been announced that Rousey will be one of the next coaches on The Ultimate Fighter.
We will find out next month who she coaches against, as the winner of Miesha Tate-Cat Zingano has been promised both a title shot and spot on the reality series.
If, though, something happens to the winner, Carmouche wants it to be known that she is preparing for action.
I’m back in regular training just in case an opportunity pops up. “if you stay ready you don’t gotta get ready!”

Carmouche also posted, “if the winner of the Tate/Zingano fight gets hurt I’ll step up (for TUF).”
While getting new blood into the title picture – though Tate and Rousey have already fought – is likely the UFC’s main goal right now, pairing Carmouche with Rousey again wouldn’t be all that bad.
Carmouche had Rousey in trouble early in their fight, and the general response from the pre-fight shows was positive for both women.
