Carmouche has been all about making history in her career, and there's only one way she sees to make it again.

"It's going to have to be the first person to win the 125-pound belt and making that history," Carmouche said. "If they actually include 125 in the UFC, then having that belt will be the next significant historical marker I can make.

"Every time I do an interview or get the chance to pick [the UFC's] brain I'm constantly lobbying for 125 because I'm so tiny at 135, [so] it just doesn't make sense. In the same turn, 115 pounds is too small so I'm just going to take what they have." 

 

"I can make 125 no problem," Carmouche said. "Right now I basically just manage to make the weight on fight week, but getting down to 125 I can do easily. If they open that weight class and let me in, I'm confident I can absolutely murder that division.

"I'm just going to keep it moving. The UFC knows to call me if and when that division opens up. I'm in their ear all the time about it. I hope they include 125, but I'm not going to miss an opportunity. A fighter only has so long to have a career, and the longer I sit on the shelf, the less likely it is I'll be able to keep going. I'd rather just stay active instead of waiting a year or two down the road before I can fight again.

"Getting that belt changes everything for me,"
she added. "I feel having a belt would give me a little more bargaining ground with the UFC as far as things you want to do. If I won the bantamweight belt then I feel like I could go to them and say, 'Open up the 125 division and let me take that belt as well.' If nothing else….let me get this belt to open up that 125-pound division."

 

 

Now Liz is the latest in a long line of female fighters who've requested a Flyweight class. Now when the Featherweight division was created everyone thought that would be the last additional weight class in the UFC for the foreseeable future but demand may just force Dana's hand.

 

Let's take a look at just how many ladies have expressed interest or already fought in a 125 division.

 

  1. Joanna Jedrzejczyk
  2. Joanne Calderwood
  3. Valerie Letourneau
  4. Liz Carmouche
  5. Jessica Andrade
  6. Anastasia Yankova - Not UFC but dime piece
  7. Ronda Rousey
  8. Cat Zingano
  9. Julianna Pena
  10. Jessica Eye
  11. Leslie Smith
  12. Alexis Davis
  13. Katlyn Chookagian

Lol even in a division with just 2 fighters in it, Liz still wouldn't be the best one.

They should've made 125 instead of 145, I think it would be better in the long run.

Agreed.

A lot of the women from 115 and 135 struggling with weight.

No. They needed Cyborg to legitimize women, because right now, the state of affairs in WMMA is ridiculous.

lol

 

I had to double check to see what the hell this **** has actually accomplished. Here's what wiki had to say. I'm posting the personal life section because the accomplishment section is even sadder if you can believe that.

 

Personal life[edit]

Carmouche is openly lesbian.[35] She has a tattoo on her left side representing the Chinese zodiac symbol of her mother and sister.[36] Carmouche is single.[37]

She made Rousey tap to a rear naked in her first ever UFC fight.

I think she will fail another drug test eventually. They can only give so many retroactive TUEs

Pffft.. wait til the world gets a load of her running over a few contenders. They'll get rid of USADA if it means keeping Cyborg around.

It's not about being smart. It's about being under contract, genius.
    
Bellator just had the 145 pound title fight on the very last card.

If she wanted it how much would you bet they would give Rousey the first shot at a 125 title lol

 

Dana would be like "We need our star back"
