Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche Results - Coming into her UFC debut, Ronda Rousey was pretty well known for winning a bronze medal in judo at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. We're talking about the first American to win an Olympic medal in women's judo ever. On top of that, she had been on a literal tear, winning her first six MMA bouts by first round armbar, which also netted her the Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Championship belt along the way. Therefore, Liz Carmouche was certainly an underdog. Was she considered a good, tough fighter? Yes. But her 7-2 record had not resonated with fans like Rousey's background, performance, and quite frankly- looks had. But there's a reason why they have the fights. Here's how their historic battle went down.

Early on, Rousey landed jabs and pressed her adversary against the cage wall. Eventually, after another couple of uppercuts from the champ, she took Carmouche down. However, the challenger then took her adversary’s back. Rousey stood up with Carmouche looking for the rear naked choke. But Rousey ripped her legs off of her and then dropped her to the canvas after a serious struggle. Standing over Carmouche, Rousey landed some punches. Rousey then dropped down and took side control. Then came a headlock and punches from the champ. After beating on Carmouche’s face pretty badly, Rousey moved to the mount and then started looking for the armbar. And then she sunk it in.

Yep, Rousey is amazing. That was a tough fight, though. Rousey had to work big time.

Ronda Rousey defeats Liz Carmouche by armbar at 4:49 of round one.
