For the first time in her career, Rousey went into the second frame of a professional fight. She looked tired, but not out of it.
Rousey came out firing punches but largely missed. She did earn a trip takedown soon thereafter, but Tate hit kicks from the bottom that looked devastating. They got back up but once again, Rousey hit a big takedown.
That judo is unstoppable.
They slowed down quite a bit into the second by clinching up against the fence and laying punches on each other. Rousey earned another takedown but Tate worked for an armbar. She couldn't get it, though, and Ronda worked for her patented submission.
She couldn't get it the first time but she did get it the second time.
But Tate got out.
Rousey found a neck crank with her legs then and worked a choke with her calves. Still, Tate survived and they would go to a third round.
