Quickly, Rousey showed her judo background by slamming Tate to the canvas several times. Tate tried to keep up, but Rousey repeatedly put her on the ground. As a battered Tate continued on, she had gained support from the fans in attendance before getting caught in an armbar during round three.
Post-fight, Tate offered her hand and Rousey walked away. Rousey said she respects Tate, but was unable to shake hands due to the trash-talk about her family. The fans were booing Rousey heavily, which was a big difference from her debut 10 months ago.
The win keeps Rousey undefeated at 7-0. All of the champion's previous wins occurred in the first round via armbar. This three-round win over Tate saw a similar end thanks to the dreaded armbar of Rousey.
Tate drops to 0-2 for the UFC as she looked to revenge the Rousey Strikeforce loss from 2012. Her other UFC defeat came from Cat Zingano, who was in attendance and is a rumored No. 1 contender.
