She normally walks around at 155-160, so at 135 with her frame she's naturally going to be ripped. She'll be bigger than most of the other women at 135, and that will be an advantage against Tate.

And it looks like she's working hard on her weakness, which is striking. If she masters that, all the 135ers better watch out!

She'll be taking on Miesha Tate March 3rd on showtime 10pm eastern time.
Usually somebody will post it on youtube.

Weigh-In
Ronda doesn't flex, but Miesha does...


And here's Miesha's flex from another angle, @ 6:40 mark

Wow, never seen Ronda that light before. Musta been a bitch for her to make weight. Course she'll be close to 150 by fight time, while Miesha should be about 5 pounds lighter. Tate will be used to this weight; for Rousey its a new experience. Should be interesting.

Didn't last 1 round...again Grin

Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey

Round 1

Tate comes forward swinging wild punches, gets wrapped up and tripped to the ground in the middle of the cage. Rousey stands and looks to pass, move to side control on Tate’s left. She sits up and grabs an armbar, then leans back to extend. Tate’s arm bends at a gruesome angle, but she turns into the hold and escapes after absorbing some hammerfists. Tate takes Rousey’s back in the scramble but can’t secure it. They stand up, Tate still holding on to Rousey’s back, and gets slammed down. Rousey guts out a rear-naked choke attempt, stands and sneaks out the back door. Now Rousey stands and Tate drives forward, looking for a takedown. Instead, Rousey sweeps Tate to the floor, but they don’t stay there long. Back on the feet, Tate scores with a left hand and Rousey instantly clinches up. She tosses the champ to the ground and lands in side control again on Tate’s right. Rousey steps into full mount and Tate goes belly-down. Referee Mark Matheny is hovering nearby as Rousey goes wild with ground-and-pound. Rousey switches to the armbar, extending Tate’s left arm all the way. There’s no escape for Tate this time; she taps, but only after having her arm broken or dislocated. At 4:27 of the opening round, Ronda Rousey is your new Strikeforce women’s 135-pound champion.

Yes, Ronda was pretty awesome tonite, and her post-fight interview was the best heel promo since Trish was doing them. Whenever she fights anyone, she will generate nuclear heat.

Her weakness is still obvious, and that's in the stand-up game. Miesha had her there, but she has no power to do much with it. Sarah Kaufmann is another story, and Cyborg is in a different league altogether. She could still beat Sarah with the weak stand up defense, but not Cyborg.

As for Miesha, she's one tough chick with really good wrestling skills. She probably dislocated the arm with that first armbar attempt, but she fought out of it and even got a good submission attempt on Ronda. And she fought forever on the second attempt before finally tapping. A very worthy champion.

For those of you who missed this fight, these highlights do a good job summing it up. That ending armbar was even sicker than it looks on this clip:

Poor Miesha...twas such a lovely arm... Cry

That's the strange paradox about Ronda. As good as she is for WMMA, she's gonna be decimating the ranks cause this is how she'll be winning her fights, with career-threatening injuries. Will they be able or willing to tap in time? I have my doubts. Roll Eyes
