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.
