LAS VEGAS -- Bantamweight champion (Rowdy) Ronda Rousey made short work of Alexis Davis, demolishing the Canadian in just 16 seconds in the co-main event of UFC 175 Saturday night. Custom Raiders Jersey
. It was a dominant performance by the reigning rock star of MMA. Davis, ranked second among 135-pound contenders, literally didnt know what hit her. Rousey hurt Davis with a punch to the face at the centre of the cage, punished her with a knee then took her down with a hard judo throw, with Montreal referee Yves Lavigne stepping in seconds later after Davis absorbed some 10 rapid-fire blows to the face. A stunned Davis had no idea what had happened as she clung to the ref after the stoppage before a Mandalay Bay Event Center crowd of 10,088 that hardly had time to take its seats. "Obviously a lot going through my head right now," Davis said at the post-fight news conference. "Well, what are you going to do. Theres a lot of stuff that I didnt do that I wanted to do ... But live and learn from your mistakes. Just get back up and keep fighting." The 16-second knockout is tied with Frank Shamrocks win over Kevin Jackson for second fastest in a UFC championship fight. Andrei Arlovskis 15-second KO of Paul Buentello is the fastest. Rousey was promptly offered the UFC 176 main event on Aug. 2 -- featherweight champion Jose Aldo recently pulled out due to injury -- to which she said in the cage that she would consult her coaches and go ahead with their say-so. UFC president Dana White said later that he had no idea why the offer was made, calling it "the biggest idiotic move in the history of our production team." Rousey will need time off to heal, despite the short outing. She had nine stitches near her knuckle on the first finger of her right hand after the fight, the result of a cyst that had caused the skin on her knuckle to come loose after her last few fights. The champion also said she will need knee surgery down the line to correct a chronic issue. Rousey did say she was open to fighting on the UFCs New Years card. The 27-year-old Rousey came into the fight as a 10-1 favourite to beat Davis, a 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., who fights out of San Jose. If the co-main event was short and violent, the main event was 25 minutes of sweat, strategy and stamina. Middleweight champion Chris Weidman needed to dig deep to dispose of former light-heavyweight title-holder Lyoto (The Dragon) Machida via a 49-45, 48-47, 49-46 decision. "Hes as good as I thought," Weidman said of Machida. Asked if he was ever hurt in the fight, the champion replied: "Probably. I cant remember right now." He said later he had been unable to hit the last two weeks because of hand issues, acknowledging his camp had been fraught with problems. In the past, Machida has been accused of being a boring fighter. But the Brazilian gave Weidman everything he could handle and aggressively went for the finish late after falling behind early. He was rewarded with loud cheers after the fight. "Hes a true champion," Machida (21-5) said of Weidman, who had never gone five rounds before. The battered Brazilian smiled and held his fist up as he walked out of the cage. Weidman left wrapped in a U.S. flag. Weidman, who came in as a 2-1 favourite, looked much bigger in the cage than Machida and stalked him in the first round. The elusive Machida dodged blows and looked to counter-attack but Weidman kept coming. Weidman (12-0) scored a takedown late in the second round, smothering Machida while doing damage at the fence. When the Brazilian got up, he ate a knee. Machida went down again in the third, to cheers from the pro-U.S. element of the crowd. Weidman cut him with a punch late in the round and took him down again before bodyslamming him to the canvas. Machida, to his credit, kept getting up. The Brazilian nailed Weidman with a body kick in the fourth round, only to have the champion make a "Bring it on" gesture. Machida, knowing he needed something big, started coming forward and connecting. Both men showed damage from an electric, bruising round that had the crowd chanting "Machida." Weidmans rib cage looked like Machida had taken a baseball bat to it. The fifth round was equally brutal. Machida survived a head kick and the two tired fighters kept punching. A Weidman takedown was followed by a wild Machida flurry as the fight ended. Machida, his face ravaged by ugly red abrasions and bumps, held an ice pack on his head at the post-fight news conference. "Ill be back better," he said. It was Weidmans first outing since back-to-back wins over Anderson Silva. Weidmans basic purse was listed at US$225,000 with a matching win bonus, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Machida was on a basic $200,000 purse. The two also got an extra $50,000 each for fight of the night. Rouseys purse was listed at $60,000, with a matching win bonus, and she picked up another $50,000 for performance of the night. Davis was on $24,000, with a matching win bonus. The commission figures do not tell the whole story, however, since the UFC does not detail all the details of its fighter compensation. Rousey, with her fourth title defence, improved her record to 10-0 while Davis fell to 16-6. The champion finally smiled in the wake of her lopsided win, with the crowd cheering her on. It was a matchup of the only female fighters with 3-0 UFC records. A smiling Davis, who has black belts in Brazilian and Japanese jiu-jitsu, entered to "Royals" by Lorde. Husband Flavio Meier, a BJJ black belt who trains and corners her, wasnt far behind. A stone-faced Rousey, an Olympic bronze medallist in judo, followed to Joan Jetts "Bad Reputation." There was drama on the card backstage when Dutch heavyweight Stefan (Skyscraper) Struve, slated to make a comeback after a heart scare, fainted backstage and was scratched from his bout with Matt Mitrione. White said Struve passed out while warming up. When he came to, he had an elevated heart rate. White said doctors initially thought it might be a panic attack. "With his health and safety in mind, hes been removed from the card and is currently under the care of the medical staff," the UFC said in a statement. The six-foot-11 Struves MMA career appeared over last year when he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. He was given the OK to resume fighting by his doctors in the Netherlands and the UFCs cardiologist. The night started with wins by five straight underdogs before veteran bantamweight Urijah (The California Kid) Faber stopped Alex (Bruce Leroy) Caceres via third-round submission in the featured undercard fight. Faber, a 35-year-old former WEC featherweight champion who has never lost a non-title fight, was a 10-1 favourite. Caceres, 26, had won four of his last five with another victory overturned due to a positive test for marijuana. Caceres length and unorthodox style was making life difficult for the five-foot-six Faber, who scored takedowns but failed to do much damage. But the veteran came out strong in the third, driving Caceres back across the cage with a flurry of blows and then grabbing a leg to tip him over. Caceres (10-6 with one no contest) gave up his back and Faber (31-7) finished him off by rear-naked choke at 1:09 of the third round. Faber, who thought he might have broken a rib in the first round, is ranked second among 135-pound contenders while Caceres is No. 12. Bantamweight Russell Doane (14-3) opened the pay-per-view portion of the card with a 29-28, 28-29, 30-27 split decision win over Marcus (The Bama Beat) Brimage (6-3). Middleweight Uriah (Prime Time) Hall survived a gruesome toe injury to win a 29-28, 29-28, 30-27 decision over Brazils Thiago Santos. Hall, who has been called out by White for not delivering on his skills in losing his first two UFC fights, showed his grit by fighting on with a broken toe from the first round. Halls toe was pointing up as the second round started. The doctor spoke to Hall after the second round but allowed the fight to continue. Every time the bent toe was shown on the big screens, the crowd groaned. Especially post-fight when a shot showed the bone protruding. "Any movement I would feel my bone shift in and out of the skin," said Hall. To add insult to injury, a limping Hall was kicked in the groin in the third round. Hall, who limped out of the ring holding onto a cornerman, received thunderous applause after the decision was announced in his favour. He later tweeted an X-ray of the busted toe. Earlier, middleweight Luke Zachrich (14-3) won a 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 decision over Brazilian TUF alumnus Guilherme (Bomba) Vasconcelos (3-2). Middleweight (King) Kevin Casey (9-3) spoiled the Octagon debut of Bubba (The Fighting Texas Aggie) Bush (8-3), putting him down him with a left hook before finishing him off with a string of elbows on the ground for a 61-second TKO. Bantamweight Rob Font (11-1) enjoyed a spectacular debut, hammering George Roop with a right to the head that literally had the six-foot-one Roop (15-2-1) out on his feet. Roop buckled and then fell to the ground, with referee Chris Tognoni stepping in at 2:19 of the first round. Font, who spent some three years delivering pizzas, also got a $50,000 performance of the night bonus. Brazilian middleweight Bruno Santos (14-1), a five-foot-nine slab of muscle, evened his UFC record at 1-1 with a 29-28, 28-29, 29-28 split decision over Chris Camozzi (19-8). Welterweight Kenny Robertson (14-3) won a unanimous 30-26 decision over Brazilian Ildemar Alcantara (20-7). Saturdays card was part of International Fight Week in Las Vegas, a glut of MMA offerings that concluded with a weekend Fan Expo and two UFC cards: UFC 175 and Sundays finale to Season 20 of "The Ultimate Fighter."

The two will face off Sept. 27 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Cormier wasnt asked to replace Gustafsson until Wednesday morning, meaning the gamesmanship has gone into top gear quickly. Jones young daughter has even got into the act, via an Instagram video. "DC. My dads going to beat you up. Guaranteed," said the six-year-old. "I think its cute," Cormier told The Canadian Press in an interview Thursday. "Kudos to Jon Jones. Lets sell this fight, lets make people want to watch this fight." Dont mistakes Cormiers comments for friendship with Jones, however. The two have not got on since Cormier thought Jones disrespected him in 2010 when they met at UFC 121 in Anaheim where Cain Velasquez, Cormiers training partner, defeated heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. "It never stops," Cormier said. "Every time were around each other, theres something .. It could be a little dig here or a little dig there but theres always something." In the wake of their fight announcement, Jones sent Cormier a "I hope youre ready to come to daddy" message on social media. Cormier tweeted his response to his followers, saying "I am. Im going to (mess) you up" with an F-bomb thrown in for good measure. Cormier also was quick to talk up his "Break Bones" T-shirts. Tweeted Jones: "This is the fight I wanted in the first place. Nothing like fresh meat #Champion2014" Cormier, ranked No. 2 among 205-pound contenders, stepped up when offered the fight by UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta, who sent him a 6:30 a.m. text Wednesday. Cormier, who had put off knee surgery to clear up a lateral medial ligament issue, said yes after consulting his coaches. Cormier (15-0) injured his knee in the leadup to his third-round submission of Dan Henderson in May at UFC 173. It was his second win as a light-heavyweight since moving down from heavyweight. Cormier called out Jones in his post-fight interview in the cage. "Jon Jones, you cant run away from me for ever, Im the kid at the wrestling tournament that is always in your bracket. No matter where you go boy, Im coming, You better hurry because I getting better." "If I decide to take Jon Jones down 100 times, Ill take him down 100 times. This is my Octagon, Im the man," he added. Now he has a little more than nine weeks to prepare for the title fight. "Hectic schedule but Im a very very happy man," said Cormier, while admitting he has work to do to get into fight shape. The withdrawal of Gustafsson is just the latest bump for UFC 178. The card was originally announced for Toronto but was shifted to Las Vegas in what UFC president Dana White called a business decision. Jones, who made seven successful title defences since winning the championship belt from Mauricio (Shogun) Rua aat UFC 128 in March 2011, won a narrow five-round decision over Gustafsson when they met last September in an epic encounter in Toronto.

. Jones (20-1) went on to win a convincing decision over Brazils Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April while Cormier clamoured to meet the champion. "Ive wanted to fight Jon for a long time. Ive wanted to be a champion for a long time," Cormier said. The matchup pits the six-foot-four champion against the five-foot-11 challenger. At 84 inches, Jones has the longest reach in the UFC and will hold a significant advantage over Cormier (71 inches) in that regard. "I dont care if a guy has long arms," said Cormier. "Youve just got to move your head. Youve got to be going forward. You cant stand on the outside. Reach becomes important whenever you stay on the outside and you allow a person to use it. "Him being tall? OK. Josh Barnett was tall. Bigfoot Silva was tall. Soa Paleleis tall. Ive fought a ton of tall guys. When I go to the weigh-ins and I look at you in the face and I see your chin right there and if I can reach you with my hands, thats enough for me." Cormier beat all of those fighters. The 35-year-old is a two-time Olympian whose wrestling resume includes a fourth at the Olympics and third, fifth and ninth at world competitions. He took up MMA in 2009, making his pro debut in Strikeforce in September that year. He combines elite grappling with heavy hands, with wins over Roy (Big Country) Nelson and former heavyweight champions Frank Mir and Barnett. The 27-year-old Jones, a former junior college wrestling champion, and Cormier have similar grappling stats. Jones averages 2.37 takedowns per 15 minutes compared to 2.17 for Cormier, according to FightMetric. Jones takedown accuracy is 50 per cent, Cormier 48 per cent. Cormier has never been taken down, while Jones has successfully defended 96 per cent of takedowns. Their striking stats are also a wash. Jones lands 4.33 significant strikes a minute, Cormier 4.08. Jones striking accuracy is 54 per cent, compared to 50 per cent for Cormier. The challenger absorbs fewer significant strikes (1.30) per minute than Jones (1.92) and is successful in his striking defence 70 per cent of the time, compared to 66 per cent for Jones. Jones has already disposed of elite wrestlers in beating Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans. But Cormier believes he matches up well against Jones. And he is clearly watching Jones every move, including the champ posting a photo of his training partners with the message "These guys will lead me to victory September 27." Said Cormier: "Ive got some guys too. And Ive got a big old guy (heavyweight champion Velasquez) thats going to ensure that Im successful Sept. 27. If you need a training partner, you dont get one better than Cain Velasquez. And then Ive got a tall kid (in) Luke Rockhold thats just as athletic as Jon Jones thats going to ensure that Im ready come Sept. 27. "So hes got a team and Ive got two guys ... Those guys I trust with my life. Ill be ready come fight night."
