You can see McMann originally drops to her knee and hand. She then starts to put her head to the ground. While she does this, she's not even attempting to protect herself. That's when Dean started to step in to call it off. As He's waving Ronda off she begins to pick herself back up. I can see where he was coming from.

But, you can see Rondas punches are lame. Shes simply not postured correctly to be applying any kind of power to them. After two of these lame punches Herb steps in. I can understand if Ronda was piling in with hard blows, but she wasnt. Sara could have eaten 10 of those and been fine still. Herb should have recognized that Sara wasnt in any serious danger. Like I said previous, before Ronda had the time to adjust her posture to cause more pain, Sara was on her way up.

I'm pretty convinced Ronda would have won anyway. Shes so powerful and aggressive. But this was not a great way to do it.

She turtled up and turned her back.

Clearly Ronda dropped her with a good shot and clearly the fight could have continued but I have no doubt Ronda would have won regardless.

I don't think many people doubt she would have won.

Ronda's punches after the drop didn't appear to be why Herb stopped it... unlike with Barao Faber.

As I said, McMann originally drops to a hand and knee. Herb was allowing it to continue. Once McMann let her hand go and head drop towards the mat, Herb immediately began to step in. He was already on his way in to stop the fight before the weak punches landed.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Yea, I can see that too. Very subjective and definitely on the edge between one opinion and the other. I will accept that its impossible to compare our views with the blessing of hindsight, and the position Herb finds himself in where he has a second to decide.

Regardless, I cant help but feel Herb was influenced be the fact that they are women. Not to say I wouldn't be in his position. Its hard to undo millennia of bullshit social programming.

I actually agree with the stoppage. She went down, didn't protect herself at all, and Herb Dean stepped in.

Ronda's GnP might have been hilariously bad, but none the less McMann wasn't even able to protect her face. I say it was actually a very good stoppage.

Also, how come Ronda is getting credit for "getting tagged". She took a couple of okay at best punches, because she doesn't know how to hold her hands properly.
