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??
The Pyle fight was stopped too late, Maia gassed and looked 1/3rd his normal self after the first round which took all suspense out of the fight, Cromier fought a guy who doesn't deserve to be in the UFC and only got there because Dana wanted to play WWE for a little while, and the main event was stopped early.

The event wasn't bad, but it was full of stupid things and something or the other took away some of the fun from every single fight.

Not an easy call for hd there, it was quick but she also flopped pretty dramatically and was not covering up when the heat followed her down. Oh well. It was a perfect knee by rousey, that shouldn't be overlooked, bas is smiling somewhere.

I thought this event lived up to realistic hype, it was poor on paper this morning and never got beyond being poor cumulatively. This ppv was no where near worth the price. Glad I didn't pay.

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.
I disagree, but ultimately this will always be a matter of opinion. For me the way McMann dropped and left herself completely undefended deserved the stoppage. We have seen other fighters get hit with these shots and they tend to still be defensive, or at least stay standing, so there is a chance they can defend themselves against their opponent. McMann dropped down with one hand covering her liver completely defenseless. I would say that she was not intelligently defending herself after she took a couple shots from Ronda and still didn't do anything.

Do I think McMann could have possibly recovered? Sure, when she got up she looked coherent. But the ref isn't supposed to hope they recover, he makes the call on what he sees at that time. I wouldn't have argued that the fight should have been stopped, but I can see why the fight was stopped.

Herb Dean is an embarrassment. He basically let TJ Waldburger get murdered in an unmeaningful fight and then stops a TITLE fight after one solid shot.

Don't get me wrong it's highly unlikely that it changed the outcome of the fight but ffs give the girl a chance.

A fight being stopped too late doesnt exactly ruin the event... its just something crappy that happens. It would hardly make me feel jipped for buying an event or something.

id have to really look back at Maias fights but im fairly certain the guy has never had that good of cardio. I personally thought that was normal Maia especially against someone who puts a pace on like Rory. The fight went EXACTLY how i expected it to go. I even put a prediction about it on the FFL thread and i picked Rory by unanimous decision. (Thanks for the extra points Rory)

Yeah the Cummins thing was weak but alot of people were saying this was going to be another boring decision win for Cormier when instead we got a nice TKO and a shit talker got his mouth shut.

The main event was stopped early but that fight was fun too.

Stephen had an awesome performance.


I think the event was heck of alot better then i expected it to be. People were trashing the event left and right and i personally expected it to be a pretty weak event too but instead i got to see some nice action and finishes. No complaints here. Sure i would have liked to see the main event going on longer but other then that im okay with the way things worked out.

Ahh thanks for the info, I do remember Jones wearing UFC attire in the past now that you mention it.

Also maybe it's just me, but I think most of the women's fights are sloppy as hell. Wasn't super impressed with Ronda's bumrush hurling punches rockem sockem. It worked for her even though she ate some good shots. But the skill level of the top male fighters compared to the top females is night and day. I liked the Davis VS Eye fight better, even though they would likely both lose to Ronda lol.

However I do know that Ronda's ground game is excellent and she usually controls the clinch game like she did tonight. Maybe I'm being too harsh, sure it was exciting. But not 1 male champion fights "guns ablazing" to the extent Ronda and some of the girls do. She could have easily been ko'd the way she ran at Mcmann so wrecklessly.

Done with my rant. lol

I thought the exact same thing lol. She was trying to be technical but as soon as she got hit she lost all compuser and just started swinging like an armature. I think at one point she threw a knee or something when Sara was a couple feet away from her already lmao.

Rousey did show a nice clinch though. That surprised me.

I'm surprises she immediately went for the clinch against such a decorated wrestler. But after watching her game plan I suppose it made sense. I love seeing body shot TKOs. It's so under rated.

Ronda is very similar to Fedor with those wild punches. She loves the clinch game and excels in those wild scrambles.

Pretty impressive stuff.

All I'm saying is if that was the other way around, Rogan would have been losing his mind how bad it was.

I never said the event was ruined, I just said that every fight something lame happened that took some of the fun away from each fight. At the end of each fight I had something put a sour taste in my mouth, from the late stoppage to the early one, and an extremely pointless Cormier fight.

A "bad" event? I don't think so. Extremely average or underwhelming? I'd say so.
