Well, I just walked out there to touch gloves and she just hit me. She wasn't interested in touching gloves and that first shot is what broke my jaw. My left hand wasn't even up to protect myself -- it was straight out to touch her glove. She took her shot, connected it and dropped me. That first shot is what broke it.
I don't think she did it on purpose or as a cheap shot, but maybe it was her nerves or her coaches saying that she had to get that first shot off. Or maybe she just completely forgot to touch gloves?
