Kudos to SLSL Liz Carmouche! Though she lost to Ronda Rousey late in the first round of their UFC bantamweight fight on Saturday, she has definitely made her mark. Rousey was the heavy favorite going into the UFC’s first female fight, but Carmouche almost choked her out early in the fight and all reports say both women put on quite a show.

“I gave 100% tonight. Thank you for your support! I shall return. #lizbosm,” Carmouche  to her fans afterwards.

And how can we not LOVE her rainbow mouthpiece?  Stand loud and proud, we got your back!

Well excuuuuuuuse me.

After spending five years in the United States Marine Corps as a helicopter electrician, including doing three tours in the Middle East, Liz “Girlrilla” Carmouche has become the first openly gay or lesbian competitor in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
