The shitty part was D'Alelio complaining after verbally tapping. Rhonda wanted to avoid breaking her arm and she has said in several interviews that she now has no choice but to hold it until the ref stops her. So arms that get screwed up you can thank D'Alelio. With refs like the one in this fight, there might be many.

I think Cyborg is the only woman out there that could beat her. When Tate hit her early she didn't look like she handled it all that well. I could imagine getting hit by Cyborg would be a lot worse. I think she will take Kaufman's arm as well. Wouldn't mind seeing her against Marloes Coenen. Neither of those fights are going to happen anytime soon though.

Frank Mir's broken two arms (Timmay and Big Nog), where was the outrage then? And how does everyone keep blaming Ronda for what was Tate's responsibility?

Exactly, it's just weird that this is even an issue.

Honestly i think she did feel bad (most humans would) You see the looks she gave Tate instead of continuing to celebrate? She was concerned, got her sht back together when she knew tate was more or less ok.

Feeling bad and concerned are two different things. She can be concerned for her health but not feel bad for having caused the injury.

I find it hilarious that people are so upset about her being matter of fact about a submission but if she would have straight KO'ed her and made a comment "Once this hand hits that chin it's all over!" people would have been hi-5ing each other.

So in summary, no, I whole heartily disagree that most humans would feel bad. I clearly don't, so say what you would like about me. In my eyes, and probably in the eyes of most mma fans, BJJ/Judo/Sambo/etc practitioners, Tate had an option to tap. Tate made her choice and now must live with it like Big Timmy, Big Nog, and countless others have.

Ronda Rousey and Gene LeBell were both just interviewed by Ariel Helwani on his MMA Hour show

http://www.mmafighting.com/strikefor...mccorkle-rener

Interviews with Bendo, Rener Gracie and Sean McCorkle are also in there (The Rener interview is especially epic, who else can give a 13 minute answer to a simple question?)

Elvis Sinosic if you ask him who will win a fight.
