ROUND 1 - Both fighters standing orthodox. Rousey looking for an outside trip, but it's stuffed. Rousey them jumps for an armbar, missing the first attempt. She repositions her hips and that's it. The referee stops the fight. D'Alelio seems confused and suggesting she never tapped. The stoppage appears inconclusive about the tap. The stoppage appears to be completely unjustified.
Rousey suggests D'Alelio verbally said 'tap', but again, the tape is inconclusive.
Strikeforce results: Ronda Rousey defeats Sarah D'Alelio by submission (armbar) at :25 of round 1.
