On a historic night, the first two women to ever fight in the Octagon showed they could handle the pressure.
Liz Carmouche was planning to leave the Octagon after her UFC debut with Ronda Rousey's belt, but instead she left nursing bite marks following her submission loss.
According to Ronda Rousey, she was never in any danger.
Rousey faced adversity early, but managed to shake off Carmouche for another first-round arm bar win.
