Rousey retained her women’s bantamweight crown in the Strikeforce “Rousey vs. Kaufman” headliner on Saturday at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, as she submitted the former champion with a first-round armbar. Kaufman tapped out 54 seconds into round one.

Nice catch, I was wondering why I lost all of my money on the card.

lol at the entire leaderboard in wagers being Kaufman bets. I guess it's fun while it lasts.

Same with the points. Tickle's fight hasn't been scored yet either.

Wow.

She is something special without a doubt. Everybody knows what she is going to do and she is still able to do it. With relative ease...

This is where (if ESPN cared more about MMA) Dan Patrick would step in and say, "you cannot stop Ronda Rousey; you can only hope to contain her." I even gave Kaufman a decent chance based on her TDD which is normally solid, but this is what happens when you go up against a superior athlete.

There's few viable challenges for Rousey outside of Cris Cyborg. It would be interesting to see Cyborg come back clean and drop down to 135. If Rousey wins that fight, I'd be completely sold on her.

Great fights last night
Rousey is just plain nasty
Can't believe I passed on free tickets last night but I would have missed more than half the fights

From the highlight reels with Joe Rogan "Who can stop that (wo)man?!!?!?" I really didn't think it would be over that quick, that was nuts.

Not to take away from her achievements, but does anyone else now realize why Dana says the divisions in WMMA are to thin to support in the UFC. This lady is on her 6 professional fight and already she has pretty much cleared out her weight class. The Strikeforce staff and her are both trying to get a 145 lbs. fighter to drop down so that she can even have a fight that makes sense and that people will want to see.

if jon jones beats henderson it only took him 5 fights to clean out that once deepest division in the UFC and anderson has down the same to MW, GSP hadn't lost a rd in god knows how many fights till the knee injury.

EDIT: the UFC staff has been trying to get a guy to go up in weight to set up a fight everyone wanted to see also. (gsp/anderson, anderson/jones)

The men are on a totally different level to the women though and all divisions are firmly established so it's a little bit different.

flyweight? It took a couple years before BW had some depth. A womens 135 lb division promoted properly and can roster more than 5 fighters will do just fine.

WMMA has such a shallow talent pool.

Still, Rousey was great last night.

No dude, I get that but Jones had 13 fights as a pro to get a title fight, 6 wins to get into the UFC, then went 6-1 to get a title shot and his one L was on a technicality. Rhonda has 6 total fights and one is a title defense in the premier organization for WMMA.....that's a pretty big difference man. That difference is due to tge lack of opponents, going 12-1 and still having to fight a guy that is not a rematch is due to having a deep talent pool.
