Amateur fighter scores her second five-second knockout (VIDEO)


In Veronica Rothenhausler's second MMA bout, she knocked out Noelle Cherry in five seconds. So when Ashlee Evans-Smith, her opponent at Tuff-n-Uff, prepared for Rothenhausler's next bout, you would expect she would be on guard for another quick knockout. Then again, who would expect a fighter to get two five-second knockouts in her career, much less two consecutive five-second knockouts.

This was Rothenhausler's third fight and her third straight win. It looks like she's about ready to go pro.
