Ronda Rousey Snaps Misha Tate’s Arm During Strikeforce Bout (Video)

rousey breaks tate's arm

For those who got off their wallet and spent some extra cash to watch Strikeforce’s Pay-Per-View event on Saturday, they learned two valuable lessons.

The first lesson learned is that women are clearly capable of providing an epic main event for any MMA card, as Ronda Rousey and Misha Tate did just that during their exciting, back-and-fourth bout for the Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship in front of a raucous crowd at Nationwide Arena.

As for the second lesson, that would be the following:  When someone has your arm locked in an armbar, don’t try to be a hero and get out of it, unless you don’t mind watching your elbow bend it ways it was never meant to bend.  You can see exactly what I am talking about in the video below, as Rousey snapped Tate’s arm 4:27 into the opening round to take the match and the Bantamweight title.

The arm-breaking action begins at the 4:20 mark.

(Update: X-rays revealed that Tate did not break any bones in her arm, but an MRI is scheduled to find out if any ligament damage was suffered.)
