It was the first time the bantamweight champion picked up a win without an armbar. Rousey used the submission to win her first eight pro fights and stopped her first seven foes with armbars in the opening round.
Although she's looked dominant in her first three UFC title defenses, Rousey still has a number of worthy contenders battling for a shot at her championship. Cat Zingano, UFC 170 winner Alexis Davis and Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino would all be intriguing challengers.
With another UFC event in the books, here are the matchups that should be next for Rousey and the rest of Saturday's competitors.
