One of the more anticipated fights on the UFC 175 PPV card was the women's bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and Alexis Davis.  Many expected Davis to put up a tough test for Rousey but that was far from the case, as the champ dominated the contest en route to her quickest title defence to date.

The fight lasted a mere 16 seconds as Ronda quickly grabbed a hold of Alexi Davis and flipped her into side control, where she unloaded a barrage of strikes - ten to be exact - to finish the fight in emphatic fashion. After referee Yves Lavigne stopped the fight, Davis remained attached to Rousey and then proceeded to try for a takedown on Lavigne - a testament to her consciousness in the moments following the stoppage.

Following her rapid-fire victory, Rousey proceeded to explain to the crowd in attendance that she was working hardest on her striking game: "I box six days a week," Rousey told Rogan following her win. "I have more to catch up on my striking so I do that the most."

Official Result: Ronda Rousey def. Alexis Davis via KO (Strikes, Round 1, 0:16)
