UFC 157 Results: Rousey defends her UFC belt with armbar in 1st

source: The Underground

The retired Marine was quite literally a weight on Rousey's shoulders, early in the first round, when she took Rousey's back and attempted to sink in a choke. Rousey tried to resist, so Carmouche turned it into a neck crank, and it was, shall we says, cranked.

Rousey, showing the heart of a champion, refused to tap. Her face twisted up and in pain, she managed to work one of Carmouche's hands free, and then free herself of Carmouche as a backpack. And then, and only then, she could go to work.

Finally, she spun to a headlock and hurt Carmouche with punches before setting up an armbar from the top. Time after time, we've seen the armbar as a quick finish for her, but Carmouche (8-3) held on to her threatened arm, refusing to let it go. Rousey worked a little at a time to get it free, throwing an occasional hammerfist from the top, then yanking, then repeating the process over and over. Finally, as the round ticked down to its final seconds, she pulled it free, and torqued the elbow, getting the tap.

Look it up he is correct, she has never beaten anyone with a winning record. Edit you said when she fought them. I don't care enough to look up whether thats true or not. Have a good day.
