“You get hit to the body like that, and regular people who have never been hit to the body have no f—— clue what that feels like. Believe me when I tell you. She went down on her knees and she turned her head the other way. Could Herb have let her take some shots to the face? When the fight happened when I saw it, I said ‘oh man.’ then I watched the replay and I thought it was a good stoppage.”
Some are calling foul when talking about Ronda Rousey’s win last Saturday night.
McMann was visibly stunned by a knee to the liver, her body folded to the canvas all while Rousey continued to land blows to the face. Referee Herb Dean had seen enough, but right as he halted the bout, McMann was seeing rising to her feet.
It was a close judgement call, but according to the UFC boss, he stands by it.
