Rousey Armbars Kaufman – Courtesy Strikeforce
A Ronda Rousey armbar can’t be stopped, only contained for several seconds.
The Strikeforce champ only needed 54 seconds to submit Sarah Kaufman to retain her title. Rousey challenged Cyborg Santos at 135 pounds; which was immediately rejected by Cyborg.
Tate Armbars Kedzie
The featured bout of the preliminary bouts stole the show as the former champion Miesha Tate and Julie Kedzie threw down in a match of the year candidate. Kedzie surprised everyone, out striking Tate throughout the fight, hitting a few head kicks that could have easily knocked out some of the guys. Tate came back to get the armbar submission in the third round.
In the only featherweight bout on the card, Germaine de Randamie was able to keep it on the feet and outstruck the #1 Unified ranked Hiroko Yamanaka to a unanimous decision victory.
