It actually didn't play out to bad, I thought we were gonna be playing the I can't stop a TD so I will just hold on for dear life game all night. A lot of lay and pray is simply cause the person on bottom is just clinging praying for a stand up.

Good stoppage, that could gone on forever until there was no skin left on Sara's elbow or Sheila's face.

People that said it was a bad stoppage are the same that though Tate's messed up self was going for a real TD when they stopped that one. At some point you have to call it, these girls don't deliver KO power.

I mean it wasn't a bad fight because there was a finish. But truth is even top 10 ladies are usually very one-dimensional.

Was about to say the same thing in regards t a potential Sara vs Rondah fight.

Tate and Kat have given the best display of mixed martial art(S) among female UFC fighters thus far

1 minute of pillow punches wouldn't have hurt her that bad... If there had been some force I would be all for the stoppage the strikes just seemed to be a little weak to warrant a stoppage even if Gaff was unable to defend them.

To me that is no different then stopping a fight when a fighter is in guard holding the other fighter down and landing strikes. The other person can't stand back up and can only make limited actions to defend themselves but unless they are being hammered on I don't believe the fight should be ended just because they don't have the strength to throw their opponent off of them.

Lol look at those winging punches from Ovince there. Solid shots, but it looked a little awkward to me. Next time follow up instead of clinching.
