Just days ahead of her UFC female bantamweight championship fight with Liz Carmouche, Ronda Rousey will be featured on HBO’s Real Sports show. The program airs February 19 at 10 p.m. ET.
Rousey will meet Carmouche later that month in the main event of UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche. The event airs on pay-per-view from Anaheim.
Rousey has helped push female MMA into the mainstream. In a preview clip for the program, the former Olympian said, “I probably get more attention fighting because of how I look, but if I didn’t know how to fight and just looked the way I do, no one would know who I am.”
Rousey (6-0) and Carmouche (7-2) will be competing in the first-ever female fight inside the Octagon.
