Miesha Tate battled Liz Carmouche in a big women's bantamweight bout at UFC on Fox 11. The co-main event saw Tate get her hand raised at the end of the bout by way of decision.

It was not a barn-burner, but the third round provided a healthy amount of drama. Tate had a rear-naked choke, and Carmouche gutted it out. The decisive round was enough to give Tate the fight.

The world of social media was active as it is on every fight night. This is how Twitter reacted to the fight.

 

Pre-Fight

 

Round 1

Carmouche took the round on virtually every card. Tate was slow out of the gate. There was a lack of fire from the former Strikeforce champion, and she just could not get it going. Carmouche used her wrestling and strength to win the round.

 

Round 2

Tate started to get things going in the second frame. It was not an action-packed round, but she seemingly did enough to even the fight at a round apiece.

 

Round 3

The most decisive round of the fight saw Tate nearly finish. She showed why she was a former champion, and why Carmouche has routinely come up short against the elite of the division. It was the clincher for Tate.

 

Post-Fight

On the post-fight show Tate was asked about potential next opponents, and she named Sarah Kaufman and Holly Holm. Both would be big fights within the division.
