Ronda Rousey Beats Liz Carmouche Via Armbar In UFC’s First Women’s Fight (VIDEO)
Ronda Rousey defeated Liz Carmouche via armbar at UFC 157. To hardcore UFC fans, Rousey’s victory is the news. To the rest of the world, UFC 157 will be remembered as the UFC’s first pay per view headlined by females.
For years, and years, and years, UFC President Dana White said women would never fight in his promotion. However, Ronda Rousey proved to be the MMA version of Condoleeza Rice. Rousey’s broad marketing appeal was too strong for Dana White to ignore. Rousey is a bronze medal winning Olympian in Judo, and she’s also proven to be somewhat of a sex symbol. More importantly, Rousey has the type of personality that White loves. Remember when Ronda Rousey started mouthing off about Michael Phelps being arrogant? It was funny. Remember when Ronda Rousey called out Kim Kardashian for being a horrible role model? It was hilarious.
Anyways, heading into their tilt at UFC 157, Liz Carmouche was viewed by the fellas at Vegas as a sacrificial lamb. Carmouche was a 7 to 1 underdog. On Saturday night, Carmouche put up a fight, but suffered a common fate. Armbar submission loss.
Ronda Rousey is now a perfect 7-0 in her professional MMA career, and she’s won every fight by armbar. If this girl gets a hold of your arm, she won’t let go. If I was her boyfriend I wouldn’t hold her hand.
