In a rematch from their Strikeforce days, UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was able to submit Miesha Tate once again. The rematch, at UFC 168, was the first time Rousey fought past the first round.
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.
