Following her fantastic submission win over Miesha Tate in the main event of Saturday's Strikeforce show, new 135-pound champion Ronda Rousey was dismissive when asked if she was going to make nice with her heated rival.

Tate, however, does have one thing to hold over Rousey: she didn't break her arm.

In a text to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani Sunday, Tate gave an update on her condition:

"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."

Might have been better if her arm was broken, rather than all her ligaments, and tendons torn to shreds.

YIKES! They're throwing Miesha to the wolves!


For Tate (12-3), the loss was her first in three years and marks the first time she's ever been submitted. Due to a lack of divisional depth, fellow Saturday night loser Alexis Vila could make sense as her next opponent.


SBNation strikes again. Seriously...proofreading works wonders!

I loved the armbar, but might get a little squeamish watch Vila throwing hays upside those pretty braids.

broken bones are a bitch, but generally they are fairly easy to recover from. torn ligaments and tendons are far worse IMO. there is no way there isnt some kind of connective tissue damage. her arm was bent in a horrible way.
