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.
That you are....wait for it - sub human shock shock.

Anyway....You do understand that an armbreak can affect someone for the rest of there career yes? Yes it was Tates fault...but you can still feel sorry for her....feel bad about having to break it - even if they forced you to do it.

I do understand that breaking an arm can affect someone career, but I don't feel sorry for people because they make poor decisions. If say Tate randomly fell and broke her arm, such as slipping on stairs, etc, then I would feel bad. She would have no active and predictable decision in that. But when you are confronted with choices and you make a bad one why should I feel bad?

Feel free to continue to associate me with a less human being, but I find it quite humorous that you resorted to name calling.

Well she didn't break any bones apparently:

Quote:
Mar 4, 2012 - Amazingly, Miesha Tate didn't suffer any broken bones in her left arm following Saturday night's gruesome loss via armbar to Ronda Rousey.

"I had X-Rays last night," Tate told MMAFighting.com via text message. "No bones are broken, which I already knew. Other than that, I have to get an MRI to find out anything further."

Tate, the now former Strikeforce bantamweight champion, wouldn't elaborate on when she'll find out what kind of shape her arm is in and when she'll back to 100 percent. According to a Strikeforce official Saturday night, the early thought was that she had at least damaged ligaments in her arm.

Rousey submitted Tate via armbar at 4:27 of the first round but only after Tate refused to tap for several seconds, which led to her arm seemingly bending backwards. A similar scenario played out in the first minute of the fight, but Tate was able to escape that submission attempt.

Following the tapout, Tate remained on the canvas for several seconds and was unable to move her left arm in the cage after the fight.

The win improved Rousey's professional record to 5-0, with all five wins coming via first-round armbar. Tate's record dropped to 12-3.

I would have a most difficult time grappling with her. I'd imagine I'd spend most of the time in the mount position. Looking for a submission only to get countered. Then I would have no choice, but to go back to her guard and repeat rinse recycle.

I like Ronda and you have to admit if your opponent is Rousey, you are going to be a little more reserved on the ground.

Its a bit early to count on Rousey vs Cyborg, I could see Ronda fighting again and most likely winning in similar fashion. Assuming she waits/wins I think it could end up either a KO for Cyborg or a five round slow ground war, I guess I'm just not sure Ronda gets that type of sub on Cyborg.

Anyway, it was a exciting fight and I think it proved woman's mma doesn't live or die with one or two fighters and with fights like what we've see in strikeforce woman's mma is going to grow and if Ronda and Cyborg are able to win dana over we could see woman's mma alot more.
