Just hours after the UFC Fight Night 30 bout, Dana White stated that Rosi Sexton’s loss to Jessica Andrade should have come a lot sooner. Just as he said in regards to the recent Cain Velasquez vs Junior Dos Santos, White believes that the fight should have been stopped, and that Sexton took far more punishment than she should have.
“I agree 100 percent that fight should have been stopped,” White said. “I said what we should do is bring the ref out in the hallway and let someone punch him in the face for 15 minutes, and nobody jump in to help him, just to see what it feels like.”
UFC commentator Joe Rogan agreed with White’s assessment, and was outspoken in saying that the fight was going on too long.
It seems Sexton has taken some offense to those notions though, and took to Twitter to dispute Rogan’s claims.
“48 hours post fight – I have 2 black eyes, otherwise I’m 100% fine,” she wrote. “You could have given me an IQ test as I stepped out of the cage, and I’d still have scored higher than Joe Rogan.”
“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” she added.
The fight certainly seemed brutal, but perhaps White and Rogan are not giving Sexton’s resilience enough credit. Either that, or Sexton is just far too tough for her own good.
