Photo: Ronda Rousey Breaks Miesha Tate's Arm

Normally I dive right in to my post fight analysis when an event ends, but tonight calls for a little something different.

Why? Because Ronda Rousey broke Miesha Tate's arm in an incredible moment of violence and we all need to stop and look at it for a few minutes.

Here's how we called the action in our live blog:

Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Championship: Miesha Tate (c) vs. Ronda Rousey - Round 1 - They don't touch gloves and Tate wails away with punches. Rousey with a quick takedown and she moves to side control. Rousey steps over to get side control again. Armbar by Rousey and Tate survives! It looked bad but she survived. Tate was on top but Rousey stood up. Tate has the back now as she takes her down. Rousey gets free and stands. Rousey almost spikes her on her head but Tate is still on her back on the ground. Tate escapes and is on top now. Punch by Rousey and a few leg kicks. Rousey takes her back down. They trade punches as they stand. Hip toss by Rousey! Rousey moves to mount and lands some punches now to back control, punches and takes the arm bar. Tate's arm is all kinds of broken and this fight is over and so is Miesha Tate's time as champion. Ronda Rousey wins by technical submission (armbar/broken arm), Round 1.

Note: It's entirely possible that this is a dislocation and not a break. But in terms of if you were asking something along the lines of "is that thing working anymore?" I think we can agree that the answer is "no, it's broken."
