Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey Real Time Results

One of the most anticipated female fights in years is only hours away from taking place with Strikeforce bantamweight champ Miesha Tate putting her title on the line against brash judoka Ronda Rousey in the main event tonight at Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey.

    Kaufman-Davis was fire!

  • Lord Faust says:

    Indeed, a very fun fight. Ladies and light weights always deliver.

  • Michael says:

    Have enjoyed seeing Alexix @ Seneca Niagara. She has tons of heart.

  • Dufresne says:

    Tate’s arm is shredded. Rousey looked really good, those armbars are nasty.

  • Lord Faust says:

    I’m glad I didn’t doubt Rousey. Man, what a fight and what a finish.

    Ladies, when she gets your arm, TAP!

  • Brendhan Conlan says:

    Ref is partially to blame there. Clearly her arm was flamingo’d.

  • MMA-LOGIC says:

    Kazuo Misaki looks the goods at 170. Would be a good fight for anyone including many of the divisions top fighters. I know I will get the usual guys who dont know what the fuk they are talking about saying idiotic stuff like “any of the UFCs lower level WWs would destroy him” but thats life.

  • they might Logic…but the guys good enough for even the worst ufc nazi to say they’d love to see him get the chance.

  • Dufresne says:

    Am I the only one that noticed Saling’s neo-nazi tattoo?

  • Brendhan Conlan says:

    He had two of them and he’s also a convicted sex offender (“high risk”) based on having banged a minor under the age of 13 when he was 18. Google it if need be. Incredibly embarrassing on Zuffa’s part to have booked him without knowing who they’d signed to fight.

  • Dufresne says:

    Jesus. What a fluster cluck.
