Rousey Finishes Zingano in 12.83 Seconds [VIDEO]

UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey needed only 12.83 seconds to submit “Alpha” Cat Zingano at UFC 184 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Rousey (now 11-0) picked up yet another victory via modified arm-bar/arm-lock, bringing her submission finish total to 9. It .was Zingano’s first ever professional defeat

The result of this fight is sure to set up a long-awaited superfight between “Rowdy” and Invicta Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg. Cyborg will have a difficult time cutting weight to 135 lbs as Ronda has clearly stated in the past that she is unwilling to move up in weight to make the fight happen.

Joe Rogan spoke to Ronda and Cat in the Octagon after the fight.

Lesnar Attends UFC 184

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar stopped by UFC 184 in Los Angeles.

Brock, seen chatting to UFC president Dana White (pic: @Sholler_UFC) has certainly added more fuel to the fire with speculation rife lately regarding where he will end up next April. We covered Brock’s potential future in detail earlier this week.

Lesnar has pulled this stunt before. Back at UFC 164 in December 2013, it was leaked that Brock would be attending to discuss a potential UFC return. Lesnar wasn’t seen on screen, but shortly after it was revealed that Brock signed a new deal with the WWE and he went on to end the Undertaker’s infamous Wrestlemania streak 4 months later.

In all likelihood, the Beast will extend his WWE deal. It’s far too comfortable for him; with minimal travelling, minimal work and plenty of cash.

Brock Lesnar is playing “The Game”. In more ways than one.
