Liz Carmouche didn’t take any serious damage in the first WMMA contest under the UFC’s name. Carmouche was unable to dethrone the women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey earlier in the year and the loss still bothers her.
“I’m still not getting over it,” said Carmouche on The MMA Hour. “I’m my hardest critic. I expect the best of myself, I’m a perfectionist. So it’s one of those things, unless I have a chance to reclaim it, I won’t be happy with myself.”
When Carmouche takes on former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate, the future of the young division could be a little clearer.
Right now, Cat Zingano has earned the next shot at Rousey. No date has been announced for the title fight.
It will be Carmouche vs. Tate at UFC on FOX 8, as both enter the Octagon with a loss in their debut for the promotion. They’re on the main card out of the KeyArena in Seattle, WA on July 27.
