Ronda Rousey details submission that led to Miesha Tate arm break (Video)

"I feel like I didn't quite have (the first armbar), I was trying to scramble and put it together but she was aware enough to know the right way to turn to get out of it. I didn't feel very secure with it. But with the second one, I felt like she was in such a position that she would have to give up an arm in order to get out of that position, so the second one, I was sure I was going to get. The first one (I didn't think I had her) but the second one, I wouldn't have given up such a dominant position unless I was positive the arm was there."

Newly minted Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey talks about how she finished yet another fight via her trademark armbar submission, this time snapping Miesha Tate's arm in the first round of their title bout at last night's (Sat., March 3, 2012) event at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Previously, "Rowdy" needed less than one minute to get the job done in her first four bouts, and she nearly did the same here. "Takedown" battled through, though, and survived just long enough for Rousey to lock in armbar number two. In case you hadn't noticed, there's no surviving armbar number two. How badass is the new Strikeforce women's bantamweight champ, y'all? For more on the fight click here, here and here and for complete results from last night's event click here and here.
