Brooke Mayo had less than a minute left on the clock in her pro debut before a doctor’s assessment rendered her unable to continue.

Sporting a swollen and purple left eye, a distraught Mayo (0-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) could be seen on Bellator 172’s Spike-televised main card pleading for her fight with Veta Arteaga (2-1 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) to go on.

“I can see,” she repeated. “I can see.”

But it was a no-go. After nearly three full rounds of a highly entertaining flyweight battle at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., Mayo was off to a 0-1 start to her professional MMA career.

God, the amount of times I've heard the women in my life say something similar

That was unfortunate that the fight was stopped so late in the fight but honestly I can't fault the doctor for his decision to do so. It might be possible she suffered some orbital damage, but I don't know for sure. Her eye was a complete mess, and who knows if she would've even won the fight.
