Ronda Rousey has signed a contract to fight in the MAIN EVENT at UFC 157 in February ... the first ever female fight in UFC history ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the 25-year-old Olympic medalist will step in the ring with 28-year-old Liz Carmouche ... a highly-ranked MMA badass who served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Rousey was named UFC champion (female 135 lbs division) when she signed with the organization -- and her belt will be up for grabs.

The fight is set to go down on Feb. 23 in Anaheim, CA.

FYI -- Carmouche has a 7-2 record and an awesome nickname -- The Girl-rilla.

Can't wait to MISS this fight. It has to be a free fight or else the ufc will be CRUSHED wit criticism. If she was fighting either Gina corano, cyborg, or even Tate, it would be slightly better...but still garbage.

I don't order UFC's anymore. This is how they go - Joe Rogan over hypes every fighter/match leading up to fight night - then they get in the ring and hug/lay on each other the entire time all while Joe Rogan is trying to telling us our eyes are lying to us and it is not Boring...lolol

Oh yeah this chick needs to fight Cristiane Cyborg Santos...otherwise no one cares.

Dana White is doing everything he can to NOT make that fight happen.

I suppose there was a time when women were women and left this stuff for the men. Sad

Should be interesting! Don't pay the $55.00 for the fight if you're that worried about it. That's what sports bars are for. They buy the fight, you waste your money on their alcohol.

Good riddance!    

I foresee lots of surgery and lots of physical therapy for one of Carmouche's arms.

I'll be honest. I am intrigued enough to watch this fight. Heard this woman can kick ass. Although I won't be paying. Go to the bar and watch it for free.

Would it be okay if I just skipped the girl-fight and watched Rousey's pre-fight sex? I'd ask the same about Cardouche...but she's a lesbian. Although...


And yes, Cardouche was a Marine (thank you for your service) but she was an electrician in the Marines. The only gun she carried was for soldering.

There is nothing more attractive to a man, than a woman who can kick his ass! NOT! These manly acting women, it's just not natural.

With all the free press TMZ is giving to Ronda, the girl shouldn't even bother paying for a publicist.

Not saying Rousey doesn't deserve all of the posts... it's just A LOT of posts - she got more coverage here than on ESPN!

That's pretty weak showing one ready for glam pics and the other after a fight.
