UFC Bantamweight title contender Liz Carmouche recently sat down with MMA H.E.A.T.'s Karyn Bryant to discuss a litany of topics heading into her monumental title bout with Ronda Rousey next February. Carmouche is a unique fighter who spoke of her career as a Marine, having done three tours in Iraq, and her choice to go into MMA as a rare openly gay fighter.

Carmouche is on a roll in the cage as of late, but will enter the Octagon for the first UFC Women's bout as an historic 15-to-1 underdog. Carmouche is breaking down some preconceived notions of women fighters for sure, but she has a huge wall to climb in the buzzsaw that Ronda Rousey has become.

    It's not actually that rare for women(or men) to have acne, but based on the track record MMA as a whole has had lately, seeing it still makes me a little anxious for the drug test results. Hopefully this bout goes well with no injuries or failed drug tests. If they put on a good show women's MMA will have great exposure, and it may open the door for a new wave of talent.
