Given a few more seconds, McMann would've recovered, but still impressive of Ronda to show she can withstand getting tagged and then adjust. She took an oppertunity to win and threw a beautiful knee.

Hope McMann gets back in the win column real soon.

Herb Dean, slowly becoming the worst ref in MMA.

Bad stoppage... again, but Ronda looked great on the feet. Would have liked to see what would have happened next as it was looking really competitive.

Early stoppage ruined the fight.

This ref is horrible.

The same guy the let the other dude smash the guy on the floor without stopping, no?

Herb Dean was an actual MMA fighter. He's been in there, hitting and getting hit. I didn't like the stoppage, but what more can you ask than a veteran ref who's also been a fighter?

I thought McMann had a broken rib from the way she was holding her abdomen. The WAY she dropped said 'serious injury'. I think Herb Dean had a 'protect the helpless girl' reaction, but it wasn't outrageous. As a fan, I want the fighters to be given every chance to recover. As a fighter who's been in there against people WAY better than me, I want the ref to protect, me, cause I'm (I mean me, not every fighter) too big a dumb-shit to fall down when the sledgehammer hits me in the head.

Herb is becoming a horrible ref, first that terrible disgusting call in Barao/Faber 2, then TJ and now McMann. Please bring back Mazzagatti, at least he was consistent. Sara was hurt but she could have continued, while liver shots can put some one down and out, that was not one of them. Ronda displayed some new tricks and great skills but her grappling was nullified. Sara did not lose in that fight, I lost 60 bucks when I paid for this event.

Can anybody can show me a female MMA fighter whos improving fight by fight as much as Rousey? And on top of that shes totally fearless. Man, I love the stroppy cow.

Besides that, bad stoppage for sure. Its not like Ronda was landing dangerous shots in that moment. By the time Rousey found her footing, Sara was on the way back up.

The fact that I can't stand Ronda, it only makes it worse when she appears to be closing up all the holes I thought other fighters could exploit... Im not even sure she can be beaten on the feet now.

Yeah it was seriously early. It looked like she took a solar plexus shot and got the wind knocked out of her to me, dropped and was in some pain. But literally one second after she fell to the three point position, she took a single punch and then the fight was stopped. She was standing up as Herb got into the mix.

I think the way McMann dropped did it. She wasn't protecting her head in any way and maybe from the angle Herb Dean had, he judged the punch attempts Ronda was going for were landing flush. One thing is for sure, it wasn't a case of Sara not defending herself intelligently. She wasn't defending herself at all because she was totally incapacitated from the devastating body shots. We can't even try to compare it with the Faber situation, because Faber at least was covering up and she wasn't.

Early stoppage maybe, but far from a grotesque call and Sara knows how bad shape she was in.
