Ronda Rousey Offered UFC 176 Main Event Spot After 16 Second Win Over Alexis Davis

Ronda Rousey Offered UFC 176 Main Event Spot After 16 Second Win Over Alexis Davis
Ronda Rousey doesn't get paid by the hour and she continued to show this at UFC 175. In the co-main event, Rousey required 16 seconds of the opening round to secure the win over Alexis Davis. The champ has taken most of her wins by armbar, but the last two have been from pure power.

"I box six days a week and I grapple and wrestler four days a week," said Rousey post-fight. "I have more to catch up with on my striking."

While Joe Rogan was interviewing Rousey after the win, the production team asked if she would headline UFC 176 on August 2.

"I've got knee surgery scheduled," said Rousey. "But I'll ask my coaches and we'll see what they say."

Before the pay-per-view went off the air, footage was shown of Rousey's hand being stitched together in the back. While the hand was confirmed as not broken, those stitches may remove any chance of Rousey competing in less than four weeks.

Rousey is now in double digit wins with 10. The first eight-fights end via armbar with the last two coming from Rousey's fists and knees.

Davis, a former Strikeforce and Invicta FC fighter, becomes 16-6. She's now 3-1 under the UFC banner.
