The octagon will take center stage this Saturday on February 23rd from the Honda Center in Anaheim California as mixed martial arts history will be set on PPV with the first two women headlining the main event. UFC 157 betting lines and odds favor Ronda Rousey in her bout vs Liz Carmouche at 157 while odds also have Lyoto Machida favored in his fight vs Dan Henderson. There has been plenty of hype leading to Saturday's event making Rousey a heavy -1100 favorite in Vegas leaving an upset by Carmouche returning +650 on a $100 wager.
"Rowdy" Rousey will enter the ring having a 6-0-0 record with 6-submissions in her MMA career while "Girl-Zilla" Carmouche has an 8-2-0 mark with 5-technical knock outs under her belt. Rousey has been the recipient of President Dana White's attempt to broaden the sports audience by making women the headline event but many are questioning if the 26-year old has the experience to prove her worth. UFC 157 betting lines might favor Rousey in odds to win but Carmouche has actually proven that she has the knock out strength to make for a profit option as a +650 underdog. The Rousey vs Carmouche bantamweight bout can be seen live on PPV from the Honda Center at 11:00pm EST.
Before the women's event however, an exciting light heavyweight co-main event will take place between Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida and Dan "Hendo" Henderson at 10:30pm EST. Bookmakers in Vegas have listed the 34-year old Machida as a -230 favorite while the 42-year Henderson would pay out +180 for the upset. Machida will step into the octagon with a mark of 18-3-0 for his career with 7-knock outs while Henderson is the elder statesman with a 29-8-0 record with 13-KO's. Machida hasn't been in the octagon since defeating Ryan Bader in the second round of UFC on FOX 4 back in August of 2012. That being said, it has been even longer for Henderson who hasn't fought since defeating Mauricio Rua at UFC 139 in November of 2011.
