After in 2012, White left a smart business decision. Rousey was brought into the UFC and immediately compelled the first-ever women’s bantamweight champion within the promotion. On Feb. 2-3, 2013, Rousey and Liz Carmouche competed from the very first ladies ’so fight in UFC history, headlining UFC 157. Rousey won — like she had lots of times before and could lots of times afterwards — from first-round armbar.
