ANAHEIM – Ronda Rousey continues to dominate the female bantamweight division as she makes her UFC debut with a splash.
It only took Rousey one round once again to land in her trademark armbar and finish the fight. However, for the first time it was not without overcoming adversity. Rousey was in trouble early with a painful face torque, as Carmouche attempted to get her forearm under the neck of her opponent, switching to a neck crank.
