it was a bad stoppage but i think most refs would have pulled the trigger. Mcmann dropped really hard and covered up her liver. It was more of who would have had good enough reflexes to stop themselves in the middle of jumping to stop the fight.


Im surprised people are talking crap about this event??? I know the stoppage sucked but this event was alot of fun. Last time people were complaining about all the decisions and now people are complaining cause of fights ending too quick??

WTF Am I the only one who thinks it's strange that Ronda seems to be sponsored by the UFC or something? She wears all UFC attire and they promote the damn headphones she is wearing it's like she is a UFC drone. Is that not favoritism and unfair to other fighters? Or am I overreacting?

Also I agree stoppage was early. Gotta let title fights go a little longer and give people a chance to recover.

The have done that with several fighters. Jon Jones was the first one to be sponsored by them.

I think the event was fine. But it's a title fight. I don't know that McMann would have recovered fully. For all I know, Ronda would have followed up with a second body shot and knocked McMann right back down. But Herb jumped in and ended the fight within the first 10 seconds. He never even gave Sara a chance to recover. These aren't two scrubs fighting outside of the local bar. You give world class athletes more than 10 seconds to get their wits about them. Herb robbed McMann, and he absolutely robbed the fans of what was shaping up to be a fun fight.

Imagine is Rousey would have had the presence of mind to start throwing more knees to her liver while she was down, everyone would be screaming that Herb should have stopped it sooner.

I'm sure Dana White was pleased with the brutally early stoppage. I'm sure the Fertittas were also happy. I wonder if Herb will suddenly own a Ferrari or property in Belize.

No one is saying that they wanted to see McMann get her head pounded in. But there's a difference between watching a fighter get bludgeoned and stopping the fight mere seconds after a fighter has been hurt. Fighters can recover quickly, as Sara quite obviously was. I'm sure it's difficult to be a referee, but this is Herb's job. He gets paid to have a keen eye, and tonight, he dropped the ball.

Other fighters have been sponsored by UFC too.

Dana White actually stated he does not like the UFC sponsoring fighters and was against it and hopes it goes away.

But that was when the UFC was sponsoring Jon Jones. Now that they are sponsoring Ronda he is probably all over it.
