A lightweight match is sure to spice up UFC 157 when Caros Fodor, the latest Strikeforce fighter to move to UFC, is pitted against Sam Stout. UFC is on February 23, 2013 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California, USA. This fight is also a historical first for UFC as it features its first ever women’s title bout matchup between champion Ronda Rousey and her challenger Liz Carmouche. UFC 157 will also feature great fighters like Lyoto Machida versus Dan Henderson, Urijah Faber versus Ivan Menjivar, Josh Koscheck versus Robbie Lawler, Chad Mendes versus Manny Gamburyab and so much more. The match between Fodor and Stout was first reported by The Canadian Press on Friday.

The Future will prove his skills as he meets Stout on the Octagon next year.

UFC 157 is headlined by a fight between Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey and Liz “Girl-rilla” Carmouche. These two impressive women are both from California; Rousey is from Santa Monica while Carmouche is from San Diego. Both are fierce fighters and have managed to defeat fiercer fighters during their professional career. However, Rousey appears to have a better advantage with a trademark armbar move that has made her reach a perfect 6 win and no loss career. She is clearly the champ to watch out for at UFC 157.
