Joe Rogan asked Ronda Rousey about UFC 176 and Dana White is ticked (Video)

Joe Rogan was urged by people in a production truck to ask Ronda Rousey after her victory at UFC 175 whether she would be able to fight in UFC 176 next month, and Dana White was fuming over the line of questioning.

UFC 176 is scheduled to take place on Aug. 2 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and was originally set to be headlined by a rematch between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes. Aldo just pulled out of the fight with an injury, leaving a void with in the main event. Apparently someone from UFC’s production team told Rogan to ask Rousey whether she could fight on the card considering her fight Saturday only lasted 16 seconds.

Rousey, who has always billed herself as a company woman, said she would fight if needed.

“If they needed me to step up, I would do it,” Rousey said after the fight. “I would appreciate the rest, but if they really needed me to do it, they know I would do it.”

Rousey revealed that she is scheduled to undergo a procedure on her knee. She also needed several stitches to close a gash near a knuckle on her right hand (photo below), so it’s not like she will be at 100 percent health.

Alexis Davis so disoriented she wrestles referee (Video)

You know how out of it Alexis Davis was after Ronda Rousey destroyed her in 16 vicious seconds at UFC 175 Saturday night? She was so messed up that she began grappling with the referee after the fight was called.

Davis didn’t even realize that the fight had been called because she still was trying to wrestle Rousey. When Rousey pulled away from her, Davis then began wrestling the ref.

Yeah, I’d say that was a good stoppage. Actually, I wish it were stopped a few punches earlier, because Davis was defenseless and done and could have been spared some extra damage.

Ronda Rousey beats Alexis Davis in 16 seconds (Video)

Ronda Rousey is an absolute animal in the octagon.

Rousey successfully defended her UFC women’s bantamweight title with a 16-second win over Alexis Davis at UFC 175 on Saturday night. Rousey wiped out Davis so quickly that her walk to the ring took longer than the entire fight.

Rather than feeling ripped off that they only got 16 seconds of action from the co-main event, fans instead were amazed by the show of dominance.

Rousey caught Davis with a punch, knee, then did a judo hip toss, and finished her off with multiple punches to the head before the fight was called. She attacked Davis like a starved lion going after a hunk of meat.

Many from the sports world loved the show:

From the moment she walked out of the tunnel and entered the octagon, Rousey looked focused, determined, and like all she wanted to do was destroy Davis:

Here’s another look at the highlights:

Alexis Davis was so disoriented after the fight was called off she wrestled the referee.

Uriah Hall toe picture is nasty – he fought through broken digit and won

Uriah Hall toe censored

Uriah Hall suffered a broken toe in his fight with Thiago Santos at UFC 175 on Saturday in Las Vegas, but it didn’t stop him from competing and winning.

Between rounds, cameras showed Hall’s foot, and you can see that nasty picture of his broken toe. That magic digit went from facing straight to taking a right turn to pain town.

Here’s an uncensored look at it:

Stefan Struve blacked out in locker room; fight called off

Stefan StruveStefan Struve blacked out and fainted in the locker room prior to his UFC 175 fight with Matt Mitrione in Las Vegas, leading the UFC to cancel the bout.

“Stefan Struve blacked out in the locker room. He has elevated heart rate and is out of the fight. I’d never risk his health,” UFC boss Dana White said.

Struve apparently fainted while warming up. He is going in for treatment.

Keep in mind that Struve was diagnosed last year with a leaking aortic valve and an enlarged heart, so this could be a serious concern for the 7-footer.

Struve vs. Mitrione was set to be one of the top fights on the UFC 175 card. Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida and Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis were the headliners, and Struve vs. Mitrione was going to occur right before Rousey-Davis.

The immediate move leaves four fights on the pay-per-view portion of the card. Uriah Hall vs. Thiago Santos and Marcus Brimage vs. Russell Doane are the other fights.

Obviously at this point the main concern is Struve’s health and well-being, which is currently unknown.

Urijah Faber gets a lot of girls, according to Arianny Celeste

Urijah Faber isn’t just an awesome fighter, he also gets a lot of girls, according to UFC Ring Girl Arianny Celeste.

When asked by a TMZ video guy who the most attractive fighter in the UFC was, Arianny mentioned Faber, whom she calls a friend.

“I guess it has to be my boy Urijah Faber. I know he gets a lot of girls. He’s one my boys, one of my closest friends in the UFC. He has a great face — he’s the California Kid!” she said, referring to Faber’s nickname.

Alright, Urijah, show ‘em what you got:

That’s how Faber looks before he beats Alex Caceres by third-round submission. What a baller.

Ronda Rousey’s sister Jennifer got married and she couldn’t enjoy it

Ronda RouseyRonda Rousey likes to be completely focused on her upcoming fight as she prepares for an opponent. She does not like distractions and has even tried to curtail her budding movie career while preparing for fights.

Because of her focus, Rousey could not even completely enjoy her sister’s wedding last weekend.

Rousey will face Alexis Davis on Saturday night at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and try to defend her UFC women’s bantamweight title for the third time since late December. Rousey has been in Vegas for a week because her sister, Jennifer Rousey, conveniently got married there.

Unfortunately, Ronda says her focus wasn’t on her sister’s marriage.

“My sister is getting married, and the whole day I’m going to be thinking about beating Alexis,” Rousey said last week. “Anything that comes up that should make me super-excited, I really do not have the capacity to enjoy until I beat Alexis.”

Despite what she said about only thinking about Alexis, Rousey still found time to make an Instagram post about her sister.

“Congrats to my beautiful big sister and the man lucky enough to be her husband – never had so much fun at a wedding #HawaiianElvisAllDay #MatromonyRouseyStyle,” Rousey wrote on Instagram.

Aapparently she did mix in some fun despite her focus.

Rousey seemed to have a lot going on before her fight with Sara McMann in February, but she still won that fight with an early first-round TKO. It was her first time winning a fight by something other than an armbar, which is a sign that her all-around game is dangerous.

If Rousey is able to win fights even when she has some distractions in camp, imagine what she’ll do against Davis with very few distractions. Shoot, not even Hawaiian Elvis can throw her off her game.
