Ronda Rousey

PUMMELS Opponent,

Defends UFC Title

2/24/2013 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0224_ronda_roussey_01It was a little more difficult than expected, but Ronda Rousey -- the first-ever UFC female champion -- defended her title with a first round submission at UFC 157 last night in Anaheim.

Rousey's victory marked the first female fight in the near 20-year history of the UFC. She is now 7-0 and has finished off each of her opponents with the same move ... an armbar ... and all of them in the first round.

Rousey's opponent, Liz Carmouche, nearly had Rousey set up for a rear-naked choke early, but Rousey countered and eventually went on to win.

I don't like her, break opponent's arm is not what an athlete do, hope other one put her out of scene and continue a female fight as sport

In the year 2013 this stuff is barbaric and antiquated. It should be banned. The only people patronizing this crap are trallor park bottomfeeders.

If Rousey wants to impress true MMA fans and prove she deserves that title (which was GIVEN to her) then she needs to fight a world class female champion. My opinion, stop acting like a scared little baby, Ronda, and fight Cyborg. Everyone knows you dehydrate the crap out of yourself to make 135 and then enter the ring around 150 at fight time - there's no reason to run from Cyborg because she physically can't cut to 135, but would be the same weight as you at fight time. But then again, you wouldn't be able to pull your only trick on Cyborg, would you? She has far superior upper body strength and jiu jitsu, Ronda would be the one who's arm gets ripped off in that fight - that is if she can survive Cyborg's knockout power (not likely).

Ya ya I know Rhonda is hot and all that and she is good for the sport and my best friends MMA website www.bloodyelbow.com but.........
SHE TOTALLY CHEATED!!!! She BIT the other chick to get outta that choke. That is a total chick fight move. I can't tell ya how many bimbos i've bitten at Hank 3 shows in the past 10 years...total chick fight move. That's what happens when ya put girls in the UFC...boo hiss. If i wanna watch chicks fight i'll go to World Star Hip Hop.

you can't have a category just for women in the UFC. you can have women in the UFC, but "ultimate" is not gender specific.

what this is, is just a place where we can see cupcakes fighting and the best cupcakes wins. this is not ultimate fighting.
