Ashlee Evans-Smith didn’t want to touch gloves with her MMA opponent Veronica Rothenhausler before their fight at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Turns out, Evans-Smith didn’t even touch Rothenhausler during the fight either.
The event was the Women’s Featherweight Championship and it took the 145-pound Rothenhausler one right-hand shiver to the jaw and five seconds to knock out her opponent.
Rothenhausler immediately took a victory lap around the ring while Evans-Smith knelt on her knees, stunned in the middle of the ring.
Rothenhausler, who improved to 3-0, needed only five seconds to knock out her previous opponent as well. Evans-Smith’s record dropped to 5-4.
Maybe next time she will show her opponent a little respect.
