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.

What a fight! I honestly thought that Carmouche might have had a chance when she had Ronda's back, maybe via choke out, but Ronda got out of it and took over from there, another GREAT arm bar by Ronda, fun to watch.
