Las Vegas, NV, United States (4E Sports) – Ronda Rousey stopped Alexis Davis in 16 seconds to defend her bantamweight title for the fourth time at UFC 175 Saturday night at Mandalay Bay Events Center.

A right hand to the chin and a knee to the midsection had the No. 1 contender Davis (16-6) doubling over.

Rousey then threw her to the floor and unloaded right hands from a side control headlock when referee Yves Lavigne stopped the fight.

It was the second-fastest knockout in UFC title bout history, behind Andrei Arlovski’s 15-second finish of Paul Buentello at UFC 55 in October 2005.

The finish also dropped Rousey’s average fight time, which was already a brief 2:44 heading into the fight.

In another main fight, Uriah Hall attacked Thiago Santos relentlessly on the feet en route to a unanimous decision. Judges scored the fight 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28.

Santos dropped to 9-3.

Russell Doane defeated Marcus Brimage via split decision in their bantamweight fight. Two judges scored the bout 30-27 and 29-28 for Doane, while the third scored it 29-28 for Brimage.

Thne Uriah Faber (31-7) submitted Alex Caceres via rear-naked choke at 1:09 of the third round.

Caceres fell to 10-5.
