That is all it took Ronda Rousey to defeat Cat Zingano and retain her UFC Women's Bantamweight title. She is now 5-0 in the UFC with a little over 17 minutes total time in the octagon.
The challenger came flying out of her corner, aiming a knee at the champion. Just seconds later Rousey was in the dominant position, locking in her trademark armbar. Zingano had no choice but to tapout and John McCarthy ended the fight.
It was the fastest every victory by submission in a championship fight and also the joint fastest victory by submission in modern UFC history.
.@RondaRousey #14seconds submission is the fastest finish of any kind in a UFC championship fight. #UFC184

If @RondaRousey showed that armbar sequence at a seminar I'd probably think it was unrealistic. Unbelievable, different level.
