Nice crucifix. Gaff could do nothing but take punches and elbows.

Gaff didn't fight too intelligently. Running at a wrestler and staying offensive in the clinch instead of trying to create space to escape are bad ideas. Must have thought her "tank ways" could out power wrestling technique.

McMann is a beast. That was embarrassingly easy.

I'm not trying to hate on the ladies. I liked Tate/Zing and Liz/Ronda.

But that was terrible. There is seriously 3 or 4 capable women. The rest suck.

Nothing McMann did said she can beat Rousey. She took down a can that ran right at her.

UFC stats are so F'd too. After McMann got the easy TD right off the bat...as they stood up the punch count was 31-5 McMann. What 5 strikes did the other girl land at that time????? She was on bottom holding on....but she landed 5 strikes? UFC lies to you about the strikes.

I don't think it's a questionable stoppage at all. She'd eat another 60 seconds of those shots uncontested. Even if they aren't super powerful, the ref simply will not allow you to take 100 jabs to the face without any way to protect yourself.

Yeah, Tank really should fo tried to pick at her instead of doing what most kind of predicted she would and try to overwhelm her.

See while usually I would be infuriated by men threatening women in this case it doesn't bother me. A) Rhonda talked first and B) she is perfectly capable of defending herself if anything actually happened. If Caraway was a big WW or Rhonda was an olympic figure skater it would be different but they are about the same size and frankly I think Rhonda is vastly more skilled and think she would break his arm. He is talking about a fight with another fighter, I don't see it the same way as a street fight.

'I know I hit her, officer, but she said I wasn't a real man! So it's okay!'
Jeez, man. Chilax. You're tense 'cause your man is up tonight. Hope his new belt cools down your heart.

It was not a questionable stoppage. Gaff was eating punches and elbows and couldn't get out of the position despite her efforts. She would have eaten them the entire round.

It wasn't a bad fight.
