Ronda Rousey needed all of 14 seconds to defend her UFC women's bantamweight title and defeat Cat Zingano at UFC 184.

While I couldn't bring myself to pick against Rousey, I do acknowledge that this should be a tough fight that lasts into the third round or later. The longer it goes, the less points Rousey wo read news >>
