UFC 175 Results: Ronda Rousey Destroys Alexis Davis in 16 Seconds

July 6, 2014

Ronda Rousey US Flag UFC BeltUFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey logged her fasted career finish at UFC 175 on Saturday, dispatching of No. 2 ranked Alexis Davis in just 16 seconds.

Rousey came out in her usual fashion; fast and furious.  The two women met in the center of the octagon, and Davis landed first with a right hand.  Rousey responded with right hook that stunned Davis.  She followed it up with a knee to the face before tossing Davis to the canvas with a judo throw.  Once on top, Rousey unleashed a series of right hands that left Davis wrestling the referee and a Nevada Athletic Commission official following the stoppage.

“I box six days a week. I grapple and wrestler four days a week. I have more to do on my striking so that’s what I work on the most,” said Rousey after the quick finish.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan asked Rousey if she’d be willing to fight in the Aug. 2 UFC 176 main event.  Featherweight champion Jose Aldo was scheduled to defend his title in a rematch with Chad Mendes but was forced out of the fight due to injury

“I’m totally down. I make everything a little harder for every fight. I’m scheduled for knee surgery, but it’s a quick recovery. I’m gonna talk to my coaches, but if they’re down for it, I’m down for it.”

Even with the near-flawless performance, Rousey was critical of herself.

“I got punched once, so I could get better,” she said.

    Holy god, I bet she could even beat some guys.
    I’m scared of Rhonda

  • uncle

    Ronda don’t have class champions check up on a hurt
    opponent

    • Maddawgmar

      Did you not see her hug Davis? And seriously? A champ lets the medical team tend to the fighter, then when they are ok, offer condolences. That is class.

      • fsunoles10

        idiots always have to nit pick when something doesnt suit their fancy. a look at the irrational hate rousey gets is a clear example of this.

      • uncle

        That hug was fake their was no sweet
        demeanor behind it

        • riverdawg

          Maybe not sweet but certainly respectful. The only time Ronda has ever been really mean is when she was Fighting Tate. That is some deep seeded hatred. Otherwise I think he has been very respectful of her opponents. She had respect for Alexis.

  • TheCerealKiller

    She is the female version of Fedor. She isn’t that good, but the game is so far behind her.

    • dhf

      but if the game is so far behind her, doesn’t that mean she is that good comparatively?

      • TheCerealKiller

        If she were a guy, she would never make it out of the amateur ranks with those skills.

        • riverdawg

          I totally agree with the Fedor comparison. The game has not caught up to Ronda yet. But if Fedor in his prime were fighting today in the UFC he would get smoked. There is no sense in comparing her to guys either. wmma is still in its infancy with a shallow talent pool. Mens mma was the same way late 90’s early 00’s. Nobody complained when Fedor, Frank Shamrock, Bas Rutten etc were wiping the floor with fools because they were so much better than everyone. Somebody always breaks away from the pack for a while in any sport.

  • RubeKegal

    I’m American and I was rooting so damn hard for the Canadian in this fight. If Dana had a pair of balls in his sack, he’d let Cyborg kill this Honey Boo Boo Mother’s Look a Like.

    • Maddawgmar

      Cyborg is scared to come down, she knows. Rousey putting her Striking together with her Judo, not content with just passing for the armbar, GnP. She is turning into a scary draw.

    • fsunoles10

      you people that hate for not reason must live the most sad and unfulfilling life. and what makes you think ol steriod has anything for rousey? to make 135 she has to lay off the stuff which in turn means she loses power which in turn means her swarming style would be useless. keep rooting against her though, your said life will be that much sadder every time rousey steps in the cage.

      • RubeKegal

        She is a miserable anti-humble biitch who thinks she can beat Cain Velazquez. Bittch needs to be knocked back into reality

    • Don Lee

      Cyborg has a pair of balls. That’s why she hasn’t been signed. Besides she wouldn’t make it out of the first round with Ronda.

  • deepgrim

    looks like davis was out from the time she hit the ground from that judo throw her arms never moved. think people are going to sleep on rondas striking because of the arm bar. she is miles ahead of every other female on the roster and her striking is still improving. cyborg and holly holms are the only fights i want to see her in now and too be honest i think she is bidding time till her stand up is good enough for them. I think she will want to ko cyborg

    • Ian Price

      Don’t forget Kat. Her Muai Thai is phenomenal!

      • deepgrim

        to be honest im not convinced by cat and her mind is probably of mma at the minute. Just think the way that tate was winning the fight against her until the last round would make me think that ronda will be too strong for her. She is the only fight the ufc is going to give to her at the minute but i dont like her chances anymore than i did alexis

      • riverdawg

        I like Cat. But I honestly never even heard of her before her fight with Tate and had to do some homework. She’s legit but I dunno if she’s really the one to beat Ronda. While she TKO’d Tate in impressive fashion in the 3rd round… she may have lost those first two rounds. Also she’s been out for a LONG time. She did great at grappler’s Quest but stepping back in the cage is another story. She may never get a chance to showcase her skills just as Davis and McMann never got a chance as Ronda closed them both out quickly.

    • riverdawg

      Why do people want to see her fight Holly Holm so bad? While Holly is a very accomplished Boxer and has nice stand up. She is just not in the same class as Rousey in the mma world. Holly has been beating up cans on the local circuit in New Mexico and Texas. Hasn’t faced any ranked or elite competition. I think Rousey would smoke Holly Holm within one round. Cyborg is intriguing but outside of Marloes Connen Cyborg has been beating up girls that were never elite as well. I know Muay Thai is different than mma but as soon as Cyborg fought a world class fighter like Jorina Baars she got beaten pretty convincingly. I think Cyborg is strong and and aggressive but I think Rousey beats her all day. Ronda is a different kind of athlete/fighter.

      • deepgrim

        i take your point on holly holm and she has not a good ground game but my view would be that it will take a fighter with very good stand up to beat rousey as i doubt anyone can touch her on the ground. I feel its going to take someone with good foot work that can hit rousey hard and avoid the clinch, if you can get rouseys respect with the striking she may not be so quick to initiate the clinch. Cyborg only really comes into her own win the fighter is hurt she is a very clinical finisher. Think they are the best bet to beat rousey it may not happen but i think they have a better chance than any of the fighters in the womens division at the mo. i would prefer the cyborg fight as there is plenty of hate between the 2

  • julian moran

    It’s easy to be champ, when you are the only good fighter on the roster. Bring in Cyborg.

    • Ian Price

      I’d watch that in a heartbeat!

    • Maddawgmar

      It must be hard being so cynical all the time. Like seriously, in your eyes, are the only “good” fighters in the world Ronda and Cyborg? Cyborg has only ever beaten one fighter that was good, Carano.

      • uncle

        Cyborg Beating Carano in her prime is still bigger then any of Ronda’s wins

      • TheCerealKiller

        Ronda hasn’t beaten any good fighters yet.

        • riverdawg

          Yes she has. If you take Ronda out of the 135 division its very competitive. She is just head and shoulder’s above them all. Everyone she has beaten is a legit 135lb fighter, they just aren’t as good as she is. It was the same thing when the men’s divisions were developing 10 years ago and its even true now with the 125lb division. It doesn’t mean the rest of the division isn’t good, the top dog is just that much better. Its not even like WNBA because those girls really can’t do what the men can do.

  • Lt. Dangle

    Say what you want about her, but she’s light years ahead of anyone in the division. The only question is if Cyborg can make 135.

    • Raphael Mastro

      she’s gotta make it 3-4 times realistically

  • Guest

    Rhonda vs Bryan Caraway. What are your thoughts?

    • TheCerealKiller

      I think you should go back to the WWE forums.

  • Jon Mendelsohn

    Ronda vs Bryan Caraway. …. What are your thoughts?

    • Maddawgmar

      Ronda by :30 KO…

  • Baller31

    Another can bites the dust

    • Maddawgmar

      I don’t think they are cans if they are the best in the world. So what do you make of DJ at 125? That’s not a stacked division, so he doesn’t get props for being the best?

      • XIRand0mHeroIX

        The pool is very shallow and the UFC will give anyone with a win a fight with Rousey because she is a big draw and that division is already wiped. That woman last night had no business in the cage with Rousey. Might be time to move her in with the men for a Rousey vs Aldo superfight

        • Maddawgmar

          Davis had won like four or five in a row, between Strikeforce and UFC. Davis was outmatched, but far from no business in the cage. Take Ronda out of the picture and that division then becomes very competitive. Just because she is far ahead of her competition does mean the other fighters are “cans”.

          • earlsimmons

            record in strikeforce means absolutely nothing. Ask diaz.

          • Maddawgmar

            Normally that is the case. But since the whole division was absorbed from Strikeforce, I believe that it does count. Kinda how WEC was absorbed and the Champs changed over, top contenders kept there spots.

          • riverdawg

            Actually Davis started her win streak in Invicta. But it still counts imo. Espeically considering there was no UFC BW division at the time. Diaz had an immediate title shot with GSP when Strikeforce got absorbed but he blew it when he missed that press conference.

        • riverdawg

          I wouldn’t say the division is completely wiped yet. Cat Zingano should still get a crack at the belt. Not sure how she’ll be after such a long lay off but she’s undefeated and poses a threat. Amanda Nunes could be a few impressive wins away from a shot. Sarah Kaufman is lurking around and could be a few wins away. After that it is slim picking. If Rousey defends successfully 2 more times I’d say a catchweight Superfight with Cyborg is the only fight that makes sense.

    • riverdawg

      Stop trolling. Davis is a good fighter at 135. She earned her shot and she got destroyed by a freak athlete/fighter. Ronda is a beast and way ahead of the competition. Cyborg wouldn’t do much better.

      • brad king

        she aint a freak that ronda, just that she is being fed lambs. comeon dana for once give her some real competition.

        • Maddawgmar

          And what would you be saying if Cyborg and Rousey fought and Rousey took her arm in the first round? Haters are gonna hate no matter what. If she was getting taken to the brink and barely eeking decisions I could see your point, but she is demolishing them.

          • earlsimmons

            I think is Rousey beat Cyborg we would all agree that she is no joke. But she dodges and fights cans…that the problem bro. I mean davis gets tossed and just lays and takes shots to the face. Doesnt even try to turn. What a joke.

          • riverdawg

            Davis was out and on auto pilot after she got tossed. Ronda hit her with a big over hand right that rocked her, hit her with a knee than tossed her hard. Fight was over when they hit the mat, nothing Davis could do at that point. Her brain was already scrambled. The punches at the end just finished her off. That being said Davis is no can. Go back and watch her fights pre-Ronda Rousey era. She was legit and had some great fights. Ronda is just a different kind of fighter and still getting better. Ronda makes good fighters look weak. Who are all these fighters she’s avoiding/dodging? She’s fighting top 5 women in all of her title defenses. Fighting Cyborg would be great and I think Ronda would beat her but thats up to Cyborg to get down to 135 and Challenge her. Not the other way around.

        • riverdawg

          Who is this “Real Competition” Dana is supposed to give her? Just because Rousey is great at what she does doesn’t mean she isn’t fighting the best available opponents. There isn’t a line a Killers that she’s avoiding. Some of the best female 135lb fighters in the world are in her division. She is just head and shoulders above them right now. Cyborg might be the only one that could give her a test but she fights at 145 and in a different promotion. Its the fight fans want to see but if they are gonna fight it has to be at 135 for the belt or it has to be a catchweight non-title Superfight after Ronda finishes cleaning out the division. Thats the only way it happens and Cyborg may never make 135.

      • Baller31

        You’re a douchebag Rousey fan girl

        • riverdawg

          Call me what you want man. I’m just stating facts. All the girls Ronda has beaten in the past few years have had plenty of success. They aren’t cans, some were former Champions. She’s just way better than them. Holy Holm Fights actual cans, and everybody thinks shes so great. Cyborg beats up cans like Jan Finney and Fiona Muxlow and people think she’s so great. People need to wake up.

  • brad king

    any more stiffs out there? I think caramouche vs Rousey 2 will definitely be a fight of the decade.(roar) Come on Dana make it happen.

    • riverdawg

      Alexis Davis is not a stiff. She is a very accomplished mixed martial artist that has been competing at a high level for a long time. Ronda is just a freak that makes really good fighters look weak.

      • TheCerealKiller

        If you can’t stop a judo throw, and you know it’s coming, you pretty much are a can.

        • riverdawg

          Yea i’m sure its really easy to stop a Judo throw from Ronda. She stunned Alexis with an overhand right and hit her with a knee before the judo throw. Its not like she just walked up and tossed her. She hurt her before the toss even happened.

          • TheCerealKiller

            Is that you Ronda?
            Oh wait, it can’t be. You speak politely.

          • riverdawg

            Haha! Indeed I do! Thats funny man. If anything I’m more trying to defend Davis. So maybe I’m Alexis Davis! She got caught, it happens. Only been finished once in her career i think. I’m just saying getting beaten soundly by a superior opponent does not make you a can. Cans barely make it off the local circuit. That goes for men & women.

          • TheCerealKiller

            The problem is 95% of the women are one step above a tuff man contest. They loss all credibility once they close their eyes and turn their head while punching. I don’t know if the women will ever be at the same level as the men, except a select few. Cyborg is he only fight out there to be made. Gina would get killed.

          • riverdawg

            Hey I agree. The talent pool of elite level female fighters is shallow but it was the same thing for the men at one point to. A hand full of guys were invincible until the the sport caught up to them. WMMA will catch up now that it has a proper platform. I wanna see the Cyborg fight as much as anybody. I think its inevitable. Cyborg isn’t going to have anyone else to fight at some point and neither with Rousey. I don’t understand how Gina is even in the conversation at this point. She is so far removed from mma now its laughable, it past her by a while ago. She’s probably just looking for a big payday before she is even more irrelevant than she is now.

          • TheCerealKiller

            You miss the point, MMA is not in its infancy any more. WMMA is and I have no interest. At this point, I would rather watch paint dry.

          • riverdawg

            Come on dude I just agreed with you. I get the point. MMA & WMMA are very far apart. I just like watching fights period. Some of the men’s fights were a mess 10-12 years ago by comparison to today but I still watched and enjoyed watching the growth/evolution. I had nothing to compare it to so I’m not going to compare the women’s progress to the men’s. The women are finally getting proper year round training and taken seriously, they’ll get better and I don’t mind watching the progression….and lack of Knockouts.

  • dandogood

    Rousey’s is the UFC’s biggest star attraction. Rousey is like the UFC’s Fort Knox gold. No man is close to what Rousey is doing as a champion. Never thought I would ever say something like that.
