Following a dominating 16-second victory over Alexis Davis at UFC 175 Saturday night, it was Ronda Rousey seeing the doctor backstage.
Initial reports stated that the UFC female bantamweight champion may have suffered a broken hand. Her mother, backstage with her for the fight and post-fight, stated “nothing is broken.”
“Waiting for Ronda Rousey to finish getting stitches,” Dr. AnnMaria De Mars posted. “Hit so hard she split her knuckle Poor baby.”
Joe Rogan, who asked Rousey inside the Octagon if she would be available to fight in August and save the UFC 176 pay-per-view, mentioned after UFC 175 that the stitches would likely keep her out of action for that card as a replacement main event.
