On Sunday March, 27 at KOTC: "Turning Point" in Tarzana, California.
Ronda "Rowdy" Rousey (1-0-0) defeated Ediane Gomes (6-2-0) by submission (armbar) in the first round of their 145-pound professional MMA match.
Ronda who made her pro debut in this match submitted her opponent Gomes in twenty five seconds of the first round in what was a repeat performance of what she did against Taylor Stratford in her last amateur match for Tuff-N-Uff. Ronda who was scheduled to move on in the tournament for Tuff-N-Uff instead decided to turn pro and now we see why.
Ronda is a Judo black belt who won the bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in China.
She was the #1 ranked amateur fighter at 145-pounds with a record of 3-0.
The question now is what is next for this MMA phenom hopefully Strikeforce will sign her and we can see her against the top women in the world at 145-pounds.
During her post fight victory interview at Tuff-N-Uff, Ronda proclaimed that she would be fighting Christiane "Cyborg" Santos before the end of 2011 and with one more victory that could very well be the case.
