Following an exciting round of action between the two top female bantamweights in the world, Showtime has released highlights from the 4:27 the two spent inside the cage. Rousey was crowned champion after winning her fifth consecutive professional fight via armbar, and eighth consecutive if you include amateur fights.
Rousey actually had Tate in an armbar within the first minute, but Tate was able to escape. From there, the pair put together an exciting round that continued the entertainment that Sarah Kaufman and Alexis Davis had provided earlier in the event. Kaufman defeated Davis via unanimous decision, and will face Rousey for the championship later this year.
“Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey” re-airs on Tuesday at 10 PM EST on Showtime Extreme.
