Liz Carmouche, a former U.S. Marine Seargent, made a name for herself when she stepped in at the last minute to replace an injured Miesha Tate to fight Marloes Coenen for the Strikeforce 135-lb title in 2010. She dominated the fight against Coenen until the champion submitted her in the very last round.
Ashleigh Curry has just one MMA bout, a win in 2010 at 125 pounds. More recently, she has been boxing. She is a local favorite for this fight, as she is from Missouri. Curry is taller than Liz, which may give her a striking advantage, but it may make it easier for Carmouche to take her down.
