Gene LeBell: Ronda Rousey Finish was 12.83 seconds Not 14

The fastest finish in UFC history title fight, Ronda Rousey finished Cat Zingano within 12.83 seconds

LeBell told Ariel Helwan

“12.83 seconds,” LeBell told Ariel Helwani while flashing his stopwatch at the camera. “It somebody says 14 seconds, they’re lying. I’ll annihilate, mutilate, and assassinate them.”

Asked to describe his pupil’s awe-inspiring performance and what this means for her aura as a champion, LeBell was adamant that Rousey was an entirely unique athlete, and one that would become the benchmark for a new generation.

“How do you say something about the best that ever was? She is a classis in her field and a legend in her own time. I’ve been to two world fairs and an all-night gas station, and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
