Miesha Tate Vs. Ronda Rousey

Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey was a series of mixed martial arts bouts booked by Strikeforce and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. In 2011, the fighters began a rivalry via social media and a series of interviews, with Rousey expressing an interest in fighting Tate for Tate's Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Championship. As the feud garnered increased attention from fans and the press, Tate and Rousey were ultimately chosen to headline a Strikeforce show on March 3, 2012. This marked a rare occurrence of women being placed in the main event of a mixed martial arts card. In making the transition to MMA, Rousey, a decorated judoka, employed a combination of judo and jiu-jitsu. Tate, an accomplished wrestler, utilized ground control to set up technical knockouts or submissions. In the pair's first bout, Rousey defeated Tate via armbar submission following a competitive round of grappling.
