Women's MMA took a step forward Saturday night with two exciting fights. The main event featuring bantamweight titleholder Miesha Tate against the challenger, Ronda Rousey, didn't disappoint.
Rousey did an excellent job utilizing her judo techniques to get Tate in an armbar twice during the one round the fight lasted.
Tate was able to shake off the first attempt, though it did look like her arm suffered some damage. The next time though, Rousey cranked on the arm hard and looked like she did some serious damage to the arm of Tate, forcing her to tap out.
If you watch footage of this fight, please be warned it can disgust you. Unless you're desensitized like me, then go all in.
