Marina Rodriguez Eliminate the turmoil in the UFC 257, but it’s not without it.
Rodriguez (13-1-2 MMA, 3-1-2 UFC) has finally finished Amanda Rivas With a TKO 54 seconds after the second round, that wouldn’t have happened without controversy.
In Round 2, Rodriguez swiftly rocked the momentum when he hit Ribas with a series of flooring blows. When Rivas crawls on all fours and hits the mat, she tries to get her scrambled eggs back. However, the strike continued. Referee Herb Dean came in and it was as if he had stopped fighting. Despite hovering a few centimeters away from the action and contacting Rodriguez, Dean never abandoned the fight.
Rodriguez walked away as the annoying Rivas leaned out of the mat. At the moment of turmoil, Dean informed Rodriguez that the fight was still going on. Rodriguez moved to his opponent again. After a few punches, she finished the fight with a standing TKO.
