Holly Holm: UFC Fighter Defeats Ronda Rousey by Knockout in 2nd Round of UFC 193 Main Event:
Holm knocked Rousey with a head kick out to win the UFC girls’s Bantamweight title. Rousey was not defeated through 12 MMA matches before the match. Holm improved to 10-0 in MMA fights.
At 9.04am the stage’s first occupants were welcomed by it – Afterward came the combatants.
One by one the fighters appeared from behind a black drape that was huge, climbed the steps, and continued to take their clothes off. For some this was a laborious procedure for untying shoelaces, peeling socks off, unzipping hoodies, removing tracksuit trousers and tops, occasionally shades and cans also. The smiling girls applauded.
The striptease lay bare a fact that should not surprise: mixed martial artists have bodies that were unbelievable. Becoming a veritable Swiss Army Knife of fit fight demands exceptional training, toil that leaves belly muscles presenting as jagged borders than ripples. Besides the 120kg heavyweights, who’d the kind of pub bouncer demo common with the huge lads of fighting, the contestants in the 13 fights which will make up the UFC 193 of Sunday appeared not so much cut as scarred.
