UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey set the bar high for her next performance after Saturday night at UFC 175, finishing top contender Alexis Davis in just 16 seconds.
Following a perfectly-executed hip toss, Rousey peppered Davis with nine consecutive right hands and left her knocked out and unconscious.
As the ref stepped in and ended the contest, Davis continued to try and fight – battling the ref for a matter of seconds.
“I have more to catch up on with my striking and I can get better,” Rousey said. “I work there the most.”
Rousey, who has split time in training and filming movie roles, was put on the spot following the quick win by Joe Rogan, who said the “truck” asked if she would be willing to fight August 2 on pay-per-view in the main event that was originally scheduled to feature Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes for the featherweight title.
“I’m totally down,” Rousey said. “I always say I like to make things a little harder. It would be a quick recovery. I’ll talk to my coaches and whatever they say, I am cool with it.”
Rousey, though, did say she was scheduled for knee surgery after the fight. UFC president Dana White could also be seen talking with her inside the Octagon after the announcement, and didn’t seem happy with it being made public.
