On February 23rd, Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche will make MMA history by becoming the first females to headline an Octagon event. But that’s old news. What’s new is the order in which their opening acts will be performing in at UFC 157.
A critical light heavyweight affair between former champ Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson serves as the co-main attraction.
Urijah Faber and Ivan Menjivar get the night’s third-to-top billing. A featherweight scrap with Chad Mendes and Manny Gamburyan and a shootout between Josh Koscheck and Robbie Lawler round out the pay-per-view portion of the card, which begins live at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
The UFC’s Facebook page kicks things off by streaming the night’s first three scraps. FX will then broadcast the remaining four prelims live at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
UFC 157 takes place inside Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
