Browser Crasher: Tate vs. Rousey

I am simultaneously disgusted and fully engorged.

 

Starting chronologically, epic staredown.

 

Rousey wanting to rip out Androl’s ovaries after a horribly phrased question which included the term “one trick pony”

 

The first takedown and guard pass.

 

~much more after the break, including highlights from some of the other main card fights~

 

Easily passing guard again.

 

The 1st armbar attempt.

Tate gets Rousey’s back.

Tate gets slammed during a scramble.

Ronda reverses.

Exchange to throw to side control.

Wicked guard passing.

 

-

Jacare kicking off the cage to assist in his takedowns.

 

Josh Thomson channeling his inner Machida in what was pretty much the only exciting moment of the fight.

 

Misaki gettin some

    The way she got mount was so fucking slick. “I don’t feel that bad about it.” Never change, Ronda.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Grappo for president!  Great highlights man!

    I’m still glowing from that fight last night.  So fucking awesome!

    Extra shout out to Segal for teaching her the armbar!

  • theinsaneoneJustinMcCully

    I don’t know whether I prefer the shorts on her or GSP.

  • Night Rider

    Nice work on the highlights Grappo, fights were incredible this weekend.

    Best headliner in a while. I never thought I’d get so excited about WMMA. Jacare ‘s crazy use of the cage was great. I can see this coming into play more and more as fighters figure out new and inventive ways to use the cage to their advantage.

    The only real downer was Smith and Thomson’s perfomances being a bit dull.

    Great highlights above too :)

    I love Honda’s warface!

    Funny how she called out Tate for getting in her face then wanting a fine, I agree that was weak sauce. Tate should have swallowed mmmmm her pride and tapped. Great fight to watch.

    Thompson’s fight was painful to watch. If he gets a title shot after that it tells you all you need to know about Strikeforce and their paper thin roster.

    Gold as usual Grapps!

  • Omomatta

    Smith looked like Fatty McPudgeball in there. Dude might as well hang it up if he’s not going to take things seriously.

  • agentsmith

    ^ I thought so too, it’s like he never gained back the mass he lost when he dropped to 170, and the extra 15 lbs is just dough now.

    I was so wrong about Misaki/Daley, completely forgot who Misaki is when I wrote that he was being fed to Daley.

  • glassjawsh

    ^ now Grapps thinks you’re racist

  • CAP

    I’ve felt bad watching Smith’s last few fights he just looks like a punching bag. I was happy this one ended sooner than later. I have no desire to watch him fight anymore. Thanks for the mammories.

    Tate choked big time. Whether its Carano or Tate, it seems like when the girls face true adversity, their training goes out the window and they start brawling like street fighters. Tate clocked Ronda pretty good, but underestimated her big time. Ronda must be laughing out how easily she got in her head and lead to the easy takedowns. Tate needed to keep her distance and take Ronda into deeper waters.

  • Grappo

    while that would have been the smarter game plan, how long do you think Tate (who is not a great striker with particularly good footwork) would be able to keep Ronda from closing in and grabbing hold of her?  because once she’s got you, you’re fucked.  if by deeper waters you mean Round 2, then maybe.

    Yeah, guys don’t do that constantly.

  • frickshun

    ^^Definitely not the way girls do & rarely @ the higher levels like the UFC. Girls are quick as fuck to lose composure, including the likes of Carano against Cyballs.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Did you already forget Shogun/Hendo?

  • frickshun

    Are you putting their gassed striking on par with the girly slapfights we get? “Constantly” indeed.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Guys gas alla time and get sloppy.  It’s happened for years – where have you been?

    Is it only “heart” when a guy does it?  Come the fuck on.

  • iamphoenix

    dah gurls dun hafla weenahs

    We have no clit stats on Cyborg, so we can’t say that for sure yet.  Dug your new blog rant, btw.

  • G Funk

    Fucking DJ just pulled a Subo! Arguing against a point that he himself placed in Fricks mouf(or fingers)!

  • iamphoenix

    thanks dj.

  • GameCritics

    Yeah, I did mean to take the fight to the second round. When Tate got in striking range, her combos went out the window. Ronda may have got a hold of her later, but Tate should have at least made it harder and not play right into Rousey’s gameplan. And no, I don’t see men lose their composure as badly as the women do. Tate is suppose to be the women’s champion. Not some amateur scrub.
