UFC 168: Watch Ronda Rousey's first UFC fight

In one week from today Women’s Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey, will fight for the second time under the UFC banner. This time she faces her bitter rival, Miesha Tate, in a rematch of their Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship fight. In their first battle, Ronda Rousey defeated Tate by armbar in the first round, taking Tate’s title in the process.

The duo just finished coaching against each other on The Ultimate Fighter season 18, where Team Tate’s Chris Holdsworth and Julianna Pena won their respective tournaments. The show also featured more than a few ‘pleasantries’ exchanged between the women.

Before Tate and Rousey fight in the co-main event of the evening at UFC 168, watch Rousey’s first fight in the UFC against Liz Carmouche. Not only was this the first Women’s fight in the UFC, it was also the main event of UFC 157. Watch Rousey’s historic 1st round armbar victory below:
