Mario Yamasaki to ref this women's bantamweight championship bout. No glove touch. Just scowl. They come out swinging! Tate ate a good shot. Now Rousey working for a trip. Tate yields a little, but keeps on her feet. They are on fence, and Rousey slamming knees into Tate's thighs. Now Tate is on her back, and Rousey lands big shots. Rousey picks her up and wants to slam, but Tate goes for armbar. Now it's Tate getting top position. Rousey working on a triangle and pounding home fists to Tate, who is keeping her pressure on. Tate battling through the triangle attempt. For now anyway. Rousey rotating and trying to get a better purchase. And now Tate pops up and they swing! Big punches landing! Tate at first, and then she lands a big one on Rousey! Straight right. Rousey takes Tate back down and goes to work. Hammerfists, and Tate reverses! Rousey somersaults back up. And now Rousey with another take down as the crowd chants "MIESHA!" They are back up. Great first round. Back-and-forth action. Tate with blood coming out of her nose. And she will survive. Tate becomes the first fighter to reach the second round with Rousey.

Round 2:
Tate smiling as we start the second. And they meet at center and throw wild again. Rousey dumps Tate on her back and takes her time wading into guard. She lands a great upkick, and now a couple more. Wow. They stand, and Rousey trips Tate back down violently. Rousey again can't keep Tate down. Yet, no sooner does she get up (smiling) than Rousey grabs her leg and drives her down along the fence. Rousey landing short lefts to Tate's head. Now as Tate stands she throws knees into Tate's thighs. Posting Tate up, and working body shots.

Round 3:
Third round starts with both fighters meeting at center in an exchange, and Rousey pushes Tate to fence. Rousey now controlling the challenger, and she trips Tate down, but Tate rolls and nearly gets reverse.Rousey grabs Tate's leg below the knee and rolls her over. Now she snatches the arm again, this time cleanly and...boom, there it is! Rousey's eighth armbar in as many fights. Tate taps!

UFC 168 official results: Ronda Rousey def. Miesha Tate via submission (armbar) at :58 of R3
Impressive to see the improvement that Ronda's made. Miesha did a much better job than anyone else, but never really looked like she had much for her.

Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva

Round 1:
Herb Dean will ref the biggest rematch in UFC history. Silva a picture of focus. Weidman seems cool and collected too. They do touch gloves this time. Weidman waves his arms out there as distraction. Silva no nonsense. A couple of jabs by Weidman, and he shoots for single-leg and takes Silva down -- momentarily. Silva back up on fence, his back being pressed to the links. Weidman lands a huge shot that looks to have hurt Silva. Silva on his back, and Weidman drops big punch after big punch, and Silva's head bounced off the canvas. Dean close to stepping in, but he doesn't, and Silva regains composure for a moment. He grabs and ties up Weidman. Wow! Not out of harm's way yet though, as Weidman still in his guard and dropping punches. Weidman covering the mouth to stifle breathing. Silva doing adequate job of fending off huge strikes, but eating his share. There's a big elbow. And another. Now Silva throwing from the bottom, too. Returning fire on Weidman in isolated spots. He lands a couple of Weidman as the New Yorker postures up. Another elbow by Weidman. Inside of a minute to go, and Silva clinging on and reducing damage by keeping Weidman close. Finally Weidman forced up, but Silva still on his back looking for an upkick. Comes closse. Round ends with Weidman jumping back on top of Silva and landing another punch. MMA Fighting scores R1 for Weidman, 10-9.

Round 2:
Weidman tries to touch gloves again, this time he's ignored. Nice inside leg kick by Silva temporarily buckled Weidman's leg. Weidman threatens takedown, but doesn't go for it. Silva's reflexes still good. An exchange of kicks, and Silva seems to have broken his ankle! Herb Dean comes in and stops the fight. Weidman will retain the middleweight title. Silva is lying on the canvas having his leg looked at. Wow. On the replay, you can see his leg snapped. Definitely a fracture. Crowd lets out a groan at the grotesque different angles. Not good for the 38-year old great.

UFC 168 official results: Chris Weidman def. Anderson Silva via TKO (injury) at 1:16 of R2.


Sad to have it end this way but Chris was all over him for the first round. Do you think Anderson will come back from this awful injury to fight again, Ben?

Spider kicked Chris in the leg and it very obviously broke Spider's shin completely. He was down and in excruciating pain, may very well be career-ending injury.

wow.. i never thought it would end like that. Poor Silva. Prayers. Can't even really care about anyone who won, lost, etc. Can only think about the injury Silva took. :(

Awesome card, great fights. I feel bad for Anderson, nobody wants to see a guy get hurt like that. Glad to see someone finally take Rhonda into some deeper waters, but she dominated the whole time. Travis Browne looked really good...but Barnett didn't look good at all, either.
