In the main event of UFC 157, Ronda Rousey made history when she was victorious in the first-ever women's matchup in promotional history. The fight itself was epic in nature as it featured a tremendous buildup, early trouble for a heavy favorite and a last-second armbar that allowed Ronda to keep her streak of first-round armbars alive. 

Twitter has been on fire talking about this matchup. Everyone from sports personalities to fans all around the world had something to say, and here are some of the highlights.

Some stuck to describing the fight and giving credit where it was due, including WWE's Eve Torres. 

UFC lightweight Yves Edwards did a good job of summing up what most of us were thinking. 

Founder of Invicta FC Shannon Knapp made time to send Miss Rousey a congratulatory tweet as well. However, some members of the MMA world were fixated on other aspects of the fight. 

Phil Davis certainly wasn't the only member of the audience who noticed that Rousey nearly came out of her top as Carmouche fell off her back. 

Featherweight Nam Phan had some fun at his own expense while showing off his respect for the girls who stole the show.

 

Vitor Belfort also got in on the action, not once, but twice. Perhaps, he was worried about how the first message would come across, as his second had a completely different tone.

LowKick.com's Andreas Hale talked about the impressive signature maneuver of Rousey as compared to other holds that withstood the test of time. 

Expect to hear talks of this event echo through the MMA world for weeks to come. UFC 157 will go down in history as one of the most memorable and most important events that this sport will ever know.
