    I think that was a bit of a quick stoppage, a TKO while a fighter is still standing is kind of lame, but that was quickly going tHE way of the Holm fight. Dean likely spared Ronda from a devastating KO.

    Wasn't a quick stoppage at all imo. She was being brutalized and was not defending herself.

    It did not look like she was making a comeback.
    Just warming up by eating punches?

    I agree. I actually think she did well to stay on her feet and consequently Herb was able to do her a favour.

    She was zombie walking. She couldn't see a single punch coming at her. Anymore would be feeding a baby sheep to a lioness...

    I was worried when I saw Herb Dean was going to be the ref, but he really did a great job this time. It was just brutal to watch.

    "Quick stoppage" she was stumbling around like a zombie. She was done.

    Ronda was not getting that clinch on chicken legs, or fresh legs, or any legs.

    She got destroyed. Good stoppage. No need for a horror show finish.

    Yes, he saved her from a potentially very embarassing KO face.

    The referee's job is not just to wait for a fighter to be unconscious. It's also to protect them from unnecessary damage. Ronda was rocked hard and could barely stand.
    It wasn't a quick stoppage. Herp Dean did his job.

    she was all over the place and had to grab the cage to not fall down completely.....perfectly safe stoppage. We may not like her, but we dont want her to get damaged. When I say wee I mean every poster. I speak for evryone

    I've seen the gif of her standing feet together, at an angle, arms outstretched, clutching the cage, accepting punches.
    She was done, just from that, I'd have to agree with Herb
