UFC 170 post-fight facts: Rousey makes history with 56-day title turnaround
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey made history at UFC 170 when she successfully defended her belt for a second time in 56 days, marking the quickest turnaround between title defenses in company history. Only once before has a titleholder attempted to make an identical turnaround, but former welterweight champion Matt Hughes failed to retain the belt in the second lap of the rare challenge when he dropped the gold to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 65. Rousey (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) stopped Sara McMann (7-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) in the main event for her third title defense since being appointed UFC champion a year ago. The performance inside Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center was extremely telling of Rousey’s progression as an MMA fighter as she set a series of UFC records with the help of her striking.

MacDonald (16-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) survived a rough first round against Demian Maia (18-6 MMA, 12-6 UFC) to take a unanimous decision by dominating the fight in the standup game – and keeping Maia from taking him down most of the second and third rounds. But afterward, he said he nearly had to pull out of the fight when he cut himself while trying to slice the famous green fruit...
