UFC on FOX 11: Miesha Tate triumphs over Liz Carmouche

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.

Final Result: Miesha Tate def. Liz Carmouche via Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
