Tate, though, manages to get a completely sunk in choke and Carmouche is in trouble. Carmouche fights it for what seems like a full minute while one arm is completely under the chin. Tate is swtiching from bicep to gable grip, but can't finish. The fight ends with Miesha on top in side control as she abandons the back.
