Fairfax, Virginia at the Patriot Center is where it is set to go down. The date Saturday April 4th. UFC Fight Night 63 will be in town and two of the top women’s Bantamweight will throw down for the night. Liz Carmouche [9-5] will take on Lauren Murphy [8-1] in what is set to be one of this year’s great fight. Both women have a fairly similar record on paper. Carmouche’s stats according to sherdog are 67% in KO/TKO, 22% in submissions and 11% in her only decision fight. Laurens stats according to sherdog are 75% KO/TKO, 0% in submissions and 25% in decisions for 2 of her fights.[The 0% in submissions is that Lauren chosses her method of a KO/TKO finish in the first 6 of her fights].
What makes this an interesting fight for fans around the world, is the striking ability both women posess on paper and what we have seen them do in the cage. Also both women are very highly skilled on the ground if they choose for the fight to go this way, (we saw this when Carmouche fought Ronda Rousey and Murphy when she fought Sara McMann), every which way you look at this fight, for me, it is without a shadow of a doubt already a ‘fight of the night’ candidate. These women mean business and will leave it all in the cage, no matter what.
