UFC 157: Power Ranking the Stoppage Victories
Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche - Esther Lin/MMAFighting

Despite a rather forgettable overall fight card, UFC 157 was held afloat by a few shocking and devastating finishes.

One of those finishes included UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey's first-round submission victory over Liz Carmouche.

To think, people complained for months about the absolute injustice the UFC was doing the sport for featuring Rousey and Carmouche in the main-event spot over Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida.

After watching Machida's solo interpretation of America's Best Dance Crew, it's hard not to thank the heavens for UFC president Dana White's unwavering trust in Rousey, who put on one of the more exciting performances of the night.

Urijah Faber and Robbie Lawler also earned first-round finishes.

While the main card teetered in the finishing department, the undercard mustered a grand total of two stoppages out of seven preliminary bouts.

Here are the power rankings for the stoppage victories at UFC 157.
