"My left cheek and area surrounding the eye are looking pretty ugly today, but there was no major damage. Though it may have looked like it on tv, I never actually had an open wound. What you didn't see was that the doctor actually cleared me to fight the third round but the commission said 'no.' I wanted to continue, my corner wanted to continue. The cut likely would have opened in the third but it was under the eye. If I had to guess, I would say that they didn't want the visual of a woman with a bloody face on CBS. They also chose not to do a post fight interview with me or to include me in the post fight news conference and after party. I think the reason for that was my beat up appearance after the fight because I was not seriously injured and was completely coherent. I am very disappointed about that but cant help but wonder how people would have responded to that, as stupid as it is. "

Young sustained some pretty solid damage during her six minutes in the cage; however, she was still demonstrating that she was aware and in the fight. She also reveals that the doctor cleared her to continue between rounds; however, the commission ultimately made the decision to stop the fight. It's interesting to hear her thoughts on the possible reasons behind the premature stoppage.
