Fellas, don't be surprised to find the women of the house commandeering the man cave this weekend remote control, Barcalounger and all.
On Saturday night, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will make history when Ronda Rousey fights Liz Carmouche in the first women's main event at UFC 157 at the Honda Center in Anaheim.
UFC 157 is really a showcase for Rousey, a 26-year-old knockout in terms of both her appearance and cagefighting abilities.
But she's much more than that. She became the first American woman to win an Olympic (bronze) medal in judo at the 2008 Beijing Games.
UFC President Dana White was so impressed by Rousey's MMA abilities and marketability that he went back on his word that women would never compete in his league and crowned Rousey as the UFC's first women's champion.
Rousey should retain her bantamweight title within the first minute, likely defeating Carmouche with her signature "armbar" submission hold.
On Sunday, Danica Patrick will become the first woman to start from the pole position in the Daytona 500.
Before winning the pole last Sunday, Patrick was a household name more because of her sultry appearances in Go Daddy commercials than her mostly mediocre career as a race car driver, which started in the IndyCar series.
But now Patrick has an opportunity to prove that she's more than just a pretty face.
A victory by Patrick in the Daytona 500, NASCAR's Super Bowl, would prove that female drivers can compete against and beat the men.
Will you pull for Danica Patrick to win Sunday's Daytona 500?
I don't care.
