UFC on FOX 11 Results: Miesha Tate Grabs Unanimous Decision Over Liz Carmouche

Miesha Tate scored a unanimous-decision win over Liz Carmouche in the co-main event at UFC on FOX 11 in Orlando, Fla. on Saturday evening.

Although it appeared Carmouche might have gotten the better of her in the first two rounds, all three judges saw it in Tate's favor with scores of 29-28, 29-28 and 29-28.

Carmouche scored the first takedown of the fight, putting Tate on the ground against the cage. She held Tate down for a lengthy period of time before defending a kimura attempt. Once they returned to the feet, Carmouche secured another takedown and worked from half guard until the round's time expired.

Tate found success in throwing punches in the second round, but Carmouche continued to secure more takedowns as the fight went on. A guillotine attempt later in the round was Tate's first bright spot, but Carmouche defended it and made it on through to the frame.

Tate came out aggressive in the third round, securing a takedown after pushing forward with punches. She remained in top position, landing strikes and worked relentlessly towards a rear-naked choke. Time for the fight expired just after Carmouche hipped out of danger and defended a standing Tate with up kicks.

With the win, Tate secured her first UFC win and improved her overall record to 14-5.
