UFC 157 is going to be headlined by Rousey vs Carmouche. The first WMMA fight in the UFC headlines a PPV. That's massive. The choice of opponent is pretty weak, nobody knew who Carmouche was when she fought Marloes Coenen and that situation still stands. They really should've brought in Marloes Coenen to fight Rousey. Other reasonable choices would be Alexis Davis, Shayna Baszler, Sarah McMann, Cat Zingano or Amanda Nunes, but they all suffer from the same problem as Carmouche: almost nobody has ever heard of them. Coenen's name still holds some value. Still, this is only a practice fight for Rousey vs Cyborg on a brazilian PPV card.
