After surviving Liz Carmouche’s onslaught in the first round, Miesha Tate needed to dig deep and rally on in the second and third frames for a victory.
Tate looked too relaxed for her own good in the opening stages, and Carmouche took advantage of circumstances to land several takedowns for a dominant first round.
Carmouche continued her flurry of takedowns at the start of the second but Tate ended the stanza with a pursuit for a Guillotine choke, which in the judges’ eyes, won her that round.
In the final five minutes, Tate took Carmouche’s back from a scramble. The latter, however, fought through the Rear-Naked Choke attempts and survived the round.
The final scores in the end read 29-28 unanimously in favor of Tate.
