It delivered a tad more than I thought, as Ronda had to work a bit longer for the armbar.

But it was still a armbar in the first.

Everyone is patting Liz on the back for having her back and not finishing for less than a minute of the round. I don't get it. Dana is like "people comes to me saying how liz is a set up fight, bullshit, she is a legit fighter". How can he say that, but then pat her on the back like a little kid for having Ronda's back for 30 seconds then getting armbared? Liz was all smiles after...as if she just became president. The fight was Ronda had her in a headlock for minutes. Liz escaped out the back and climbed on her back where she didn't finish a RNC. Then she went on to get armbared.

The fight was solid. A lot better than the co-main. But people are acting like Liz put up one hell of a fight. She was armbared in he 1st like everyone and their mother predicted...

I don't quite get it. If that shows how legit the division is, then someone help us all.

Meh, I think Liz was just happy that her and Ronda put on an exciting first female fight in the UFC. Nothing more, nothing less. And if we're being honest, whether she made grievous technical errors or not, she looked a lot better than anyone else who has fought Rousey. I imagine that has a bit of an affect on one's spirits (ie. Dan Hardy being thrilled for surviving 5 rounds with GSP).

And yes, most predicted an armbar in the first. But said moment was about ten seconds away from not happening.

Carmouche did better than expected, did not fight scared and put Rhonda in serious danger. She surprised me and i give her credit for that.

I give Liz credit for staying game. But in the end she lost via armbar in the first. If we want to hold a parade because it was later in the first, then so be it.

We all thought armbar in firs 2 minutes. It was armbar in first 4.5 minutes. HooooRaaay! Ronda is still a novice in MMA. She had a headlock with no real angle on an armbar. So she just held a side headlock like WWE. How many guys get trapped in a side sitting down headlock for minutes? Liz finally escaped like any decent fighter would.

Faber got a much more experienced fighters back and finished. Liz got Ronda's back and tried to neck crank and then fell off her back.

I give her credit because she did better than any other woman. Well didn't Tate have Ronda's back too? So just as good as any other fighter has. But in the end it was a 1st round armbar.

Aside from Henderson vs Machida and Johnson vs Schaub all the fights were pretty good. I think Dana by making all those unneccessary cuts lit a fire in a lot of the fighters. Bermudez vs Grice, Fodor vs Stout, McGee vs Neer, Kuivanen vs Chiesa were all good fights. I wouldn't say Rousey saved the card at all her fight was pretty good but I still have 0 interest in womens mma.

The PPV wasn't that bad. You had an upset in Lawler/Kos, an active fight in McGee/Neer, a beautiful submission by Faber and a decent ME. The only bad fight was Machida/Henderson, which was OBVIOUSLY going to suck. Who honestly thought that fight would be good? Anyone?

And why is everyone overplaying the main event? Because Rogan was going crazy over a lousy neck crank? Come on. It wasn't that good. It was the 4th best fight of the night, and that's being generous.
