Ronda Rousey made history at UFC 157, becoming the first woman to win inside the Octagon and defending her women's bantamweight title in the process.
While the finish—a first-round armbar—was predictable, Rousey did face some unexpected adversity en route to her victory. After tossing Liz Carmouche to the canvas, Rousey was reversed and had her back taken. Nonetheless, Rousey was able to fight off a neck crank attempt to retake the top position.
Once Rousey settled in on top, it was only a matter of time until her signature submission attempt came. In the final minute of the bout, Rousey was finally able to force a tap from Carmouche, who earned a ton of respect for her performance.
Now, Rousey will await her next challenger. Let's take a look at who that may be, along with the opponent that could be next for each UFC 157 competitor.
