In the first women's fight in UFC history, Ronda Rousey extended her first-round arm bar winning streak, finally getting Liz Carmouche to tap out with 11 seconds left in the opening round.
The fight made history on several levels. Aside from being the first women's UFC fight and the first women's UFC title fight, it was also the first fight featuring an openly homosexual fighter, in Liz Carmouche.
With an extremely entertaining fight, Rousey and Carmouche basically kept women's MMA alive in the UFC. It was no secret that the future of women in the UFC rests with Rousey, and this fight needed to be exciting and competitive.
The ladies delivered, putting up a great fight that made up for the atrocious co-main event between Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson. As GeorgeMon says, Henderson and Machida were boring and unimpressive.
Not only was Rousey her normal self, Carmouche also delivered big-time. Rousey was the heavy favorite, but you wouldn't know it by the way Carmouche fought. She came close to choking out Rousey earlier in the round before eventually being submitted.
This was a great start for the female division of the UFC, and hopefully it's a sign of great things to come for Rousey and other female fighters in the UFC.
Here's video of the finish. It's in Spanish, but don't worry, it's still awesome:
