"I think there are flaws, not necessarily that I want to say out loud to everybody," said Carmouche. "But I want it to be my little surprise, but I've definitely seen some flaws and we plan on capitalizing on that.
"I'm super prepared. Unlike some people who when they get the phone call, that's when they start preparing to fight, I've been doing this since she took the title. So I have a lot more months under my belt with experience and training than other people have in their fights."
Carmouche fights Rousey on Feb. 23 at UFC 157. At this stage in the game, there's been nothing but mutual respect between the ladies.
"I like Liz," Rousey said. "She's a Marine, I'm not going to be able to intimidate this girl. The prefight intimidation stuff won't work, I won't have that advantage I usually have over my competition. Because it's a first-time event, because [it's] the first time for women to fight on a UFC card, and she's the first openly gay fighter, [there] doesn't need to be any squabbling or argument. It's an extraordinarily positive thing, we don't need an argument to push it. It's a positive event and I don't mind there being no arguments. It sells itself. It's history."
Carmouche also had kind words for Rousey.
"If she hadn't made all the work that she did and talked to Dana White, and talked to ESPN and did all that work, we wouldn't be where we are today," Carmouche said. "So I certainly appreciate and agree with them that she's a lot of the reason why we're here, but, she can't fight by herself so somebody's got to help her out there."
