UFC 175 went off without much of a hitch for Ronda Rousey, again. With a 16 second knockout over #2 ranked female bantamweight fighter Alexis Davis that didn’t come without a price. Ronda has re-opened an old wound in her right hand, needing 9 stitches across her hand after last nights fight. The result of a cyst that was popped apparently from a major impact across Davis’ face.
The knee issue is one that has been around since Ronda was about 16 years old. After multiple surgeries on the ACL & a bit of neglect, she has decided to take the time off and get her body back into top condition.
Ronda has now successfully defended her title 4 times. Three of which have been in the last 6 months & now boasting a 10-0-0 MMA record.
Damn, I would hate to have her angry with me at 100% if this is what she considers being broken. It’s no secret Ronda has been one of my favorite female fighters since she burst onto the MMA scene in 2010. I have watched her career fairly closely and found that she just gets better every time I see her fight.
The main event went well for UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman Defeating #3 ranked Lyoto Machida with a unanimous decision after all 5 rounds. Proving that he is without a doubt a championship quality fighter. Weidman now boasts a record 12-0-0 and is considered the #5 pound for pound fighter in the UFC.
Prelim wins include Urijah Faber with a submission win over Alex Caceres, Kenny Robertson with a decision over Ildemar Alcantara, Bruno Santos with a decision over Chris Camozzi & a TKO win for Rob Font defeating George Roop.
