Top Ten Things to Know for UFC 157
1. UFC 157 takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The Pay-Per-View begins at 10 p.m ET. The card is headlined by the first-ever UFC women's fight, featuring bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche.
2. Rousey is undefeated as a professional. All six of her wins have come by arm bar. She fought four times in Strikeforce.
3. Carmouche, meanwhile, is 8-2 as a pro. She nearly defeated Marloes Coenen in March of 2011, but was submitted in the waning moments of the fight. Since then, she is 2-0 in Invicta FC.
5. Machida has not won consecutive contests since 2009. He last competed at UFC on FOX 4, earning a knockout win over Ryan Bader.
6. Henderson is on a four-fight winning streak, having not lost since April of 2010. His most recent win came in a battle with Mauricio Rua at UFC 139 in what was one of the most entertaining fights of 2011.
7. Urijah Faber meets Ivan Menjivar in the evening's co-main event. He last competed for the bantamweight interim title, losing to Renan Barao via decision at UFC 149. Menjivar is 4-1 as a UFC fighter, but he was defeated by Mike Easton at UFC 148. Three of his four wins have come by stoppage.
8. Also on the main card, Josh Koscheck meets former Strikeforce and UFC fighter Robbie Lawler, while Brendan Schaub returns against Lavar Johnson on the preliminary card.
9. Court McGee hasn't won in consecutive fights. He lost to Costa Philippou in March while dropping a unanimous decision to Nick Ring back in July.
10. Josh Neer, like McGee, has spent his fair share of time in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is also on a two-fight losing streak. His last loss came against Justin Edwards in October.
