Round 1: The referee in charge of the action is Herb Dean. Both fighters open orthodox. She eats a shot or two and presses McMann into the fence. Two hard shots from Rousey plus a knee from Rousey. The knee was a liver shot and it drops McMann hard. Rousey pounces and is firing shots, but McMann tries to stand. Too late. The referee stops it. Premature, probably.
