Ronda Rousey was forced into the second round for the first time in her MMA career against Miesha Tate at UFC 168

Even crazier, she had to go to the *gasp* third round. 

...And the champ still ended her affair via armbar

While the fight lasted longer than any in Rousey's career, the ending was familiar, and Tate was victimized (again) as she took on the sport's finest female combatant at 135 pounds. 

After the two female standouts faced off as coaches in an intense and heated season of The Ultimate Fighter, their showdown at UFC 168 was hotly anticipated, a fact reflected on Twitter.

Rousey is still the queen of MMA, folks. Love her or hate her, her game is for real, and her and her vicious armbar reigns supreme.
