The first episode of "UFC Primetime," the three-week series that chronicles fighters in the days leading up to their bout on pay-per-view, generated quite a few tweets from MMA media who saw an advanced copy Thursday before its midnight debut.

Yes, Liz Carmouche has her part of the show as well leading into UFC 157, but the last segment with Rousey talking about her father is the most emotionally vulnerable you've ever seen her.
