Rousey defeats Zingano with fastest win in UFC championship history

Ronda Rousey defeated Cat Zingano at 14 seconds of the first round via submission at UFC 184 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Rousey withstood a kick to the stomach, then rolled into a choke hold and worked into her typical arm bar.

Lights out for Zingano and a disappointing end to two weeks of hype.

It was the fastest win in UFC championship history.

“I have faster transition (than anyone) because my mom taught me,” Rousey said referring to her Olympic bronze medal winning mother, AnnMaria De Mars.

Zingano was more show after the fight than during the fight.

She was near tears due to the loss, but the three f-bombs stole the show. When she got around to talking she said she wants another kick at Rousey.

“I want to do it again,” Zingano said. “(Rousey) did it, she did good. I want to do it again”

HOLM SWEET HOLM

In her first UFC appearance Holly Holm defeated Raquel Pennington via split decision. Holm was the more adventurous of the two fighters, as Pennington elected to spend most of her time dancing around and not getting much in the way of significant blows. Pennington felled Holm with a nice right with 1:50 left in the punch, but Holm got back up and went again on the attack. The third round ended with both fighters at fairly close quarters, giving and receiving quick jabs. Pennington seemed the stronger fighter in the latter stages of the round, but it wasn't enough. Holm said there were nerves in her first prime time fight.

"(It's) a new experience,” Holm said post fight. “It's tough to live up to the hype, there is so much talk.”

BIG JAKE

Jake Ellenberger defeated Josh Koscheck via submission at 4:20 of the second round. Koscheck went in for the takedown but Ellenberger got his right forearm onto the throat of Koscheck and applied the power guillotine. Ellenberger cinched the hold as Koscheck was struggling to get loose. Eventually, the two went to the mat and Koscheck was foaming at the mouth.

“That's a choke that (Mark) Munoz showed me,” Ellenbergr said to Joe Rogan. “I couldn't tell if he was passing out. I was expecting him to go out but he's a super tough guy.”

NASTY ELBOW

Alan Jouban defeated Richard Walsh by KO at 2:19 of the first round. In a fight that was fairly even, Jouban decided that wasn't working for him. He landed an elbow to the temple of Walsh and had the challenger falling back against the cage. Jouban went in to finish things and he did with about six of seven punches.

“He very game physically he felt strong,” Jouban said of his opponent. “It took me some time to find my rhythm. I landed that landed elbow and I went into auto pilot from there."

Jouban felt a bit slighted at his last loss to Warlley Alves at UFC Fight Night -Shogun vs. St. Preux in Brazil. He made up for it with this quick victory.

”It feels amazing. I was upset with the decision in Brazil and (I needed) to get back on track.”
