UFC on FOX 5 Weekend: Rousey to headline UFC 157, GSP wants Diaz

Rousey set to face Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 main event

That’s right, UFC President Dana White presented Ronda Rousey the UFC Women’s title, declaring that “Rowdy” will have her first title defense against Liz Carmouche at UFC 157. According to White, the fight with Cyborg Santos will still happen, but Rousey will fight Carmouche first. White also revealed that not so many fighters volunteered to step inside the Octagon with Ronda Rousey, while Liz Carmouche, 7-2 in her Mixed Martial Arts career, was basically the only one that stepped up with serious intentions to fight the champ.

Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz in 2013

MMA fans around the world might be disappointed with this one, as it is almost official that Georges St. Pierre vs. Anderson Silva will not happen anytime soon. White stated during the press conference that St. Pierre still wants to settle the score with Nick Diaz, instead of ‘facing the unknown’ against Anderson Silva. “If he wants to fight Nick Diaz, and Nick Diaz wants to fight him, then that’s probably the fight we’ll make,” said White, almost certainly killing any chance for Silva vs. GSP in 2013.

    Rousey becoming UFC champ and headlining a PPV on the biggest stage in the sport – Great for MMA.
    Nick Diaz getting a title shot completely unfairly and Johnny Hendricks getting his fighting performances overruled by whining, disrespect and trash talking – TERRIBLE for the sport.

    I want to see the GSP/Diaz fight so badly but like most things in life, there's a time and a place.

    BJ looks relaxed and Rory looks uptight.

    Would the UFC continue to hold female fights if ronda was suddenly injured and couldn't compete for over a year? For some reason I think not….

    I think there's a good chance that GSP could still be Silva's next opponent, since the Spider won't be back for almost a year and GSP wants to keep busy.
