Appealing her most recent loss to the NYSAC?!?!?

Does this despite herself kicking GDR right in the lady parts?!??!?

Yelling, "HUT!....HUT! HUT" constantly while striking air.

3 straight losses, including being dominated and toyed w/ by a much smaller Valentina, who would probably be fighting at 125, if that division existed. Holm couldn't even impose her will on her.

1 finish in 6 UFC fights. 3-3 overall, and could easily be 2-4 after a controversial split decision over Pennington.

Complains like crazy despite being given a title shot after 2 UFC fights. Then ANOTHER title shot after TWO straight losses. I'd be pretty happy about those opportunities.

I, and I think a lot of people, thank her greatly for stopping the Rousey hype train and almost kicking her head off. But she is starting to seem like a bit of a whiner herself. Finish a fight for Christ's sake, and actually strike your opponent instead of constantly just screaming at them. And then complaining when you lose? C'mon.

Again, why the appeal? The division is so weak and thin she is obviously going to get a rematch anyway or be fighting for the title again after 1 win. Even GDR has publicly offered her a rematch.

If you can't understand why a person could train for months to prepare for a 25 min fight, only to have the opponent absolutely rock her after the bell and repeat it again and have the ref not to follow the rules and procedure might want to appeal to the comission, nobody here can help you understand it any further. 

 

Why you're mentioning her record or your astute critique of her striking is something I can't understand.

She is "unlikeable" just because she's appealing the decision of a shitty ref who royally fucked her over?  MMA fans can be so damn fickle and overdramatic - worse than high school chicks.

she is great against a raging bull idiot like rousey. but just about EVERY other fighter in those divisions isn't going to sprint onto her fists like rhonda did. 

Outside of that, she fights like a point fighter, and will bounce and try to decision anyone else. 

GDR hit much harder and more effectively. the ref stops the fight, not the bell - the bell is the signal for the ref to stop the fight. Pretty sure he told her to defend herself until he steps in back in the dressing room. 

I've never liked her fighting style. I liked the SHIT out of her kicking rouseys head off. I have no opinion and dont care about anything she does outside of the actual cage.

"Heee Yah!" Holly Holm is absolutely unwatchable- Rin Nakai level of ineffectiveness.

She needs to actually fight and not just point fight for 5 rounds. In the 5th round she finally started to sit down on her punches, she should have fought the whole fight like that.

I feel the same way. I like Holly but I feel that she clearly lost even if the point was taken away. I think she just need to move on and prepare for her next fight whoever it would be and leave this one in the past.

She just need to win big in her next fight and not worry about her last fight.

The moment Gdr hit her the second time after the bell and the ref didn't do anything I thought to myself she should appeal it if she loses. That was a hard ass shot the first time, gdr had more then enough time to take the power out of it and never did even after throwing it after the bell not during. And then the second time was a combo and she made a face almost bragging about it and only gets a warning?

 

but her fighting style is really starting to annoy me, after the perfect ronda fight and reading about her boxing credentials I was hype on her but since then she's just thrown the same weak ass 1-2 1-2 combo at air while making noises. It's highly annoying to watch. It's hard to imagine her being such a decorated boxer and performing like that. Does she know any other combos?

No shame in losing to the 2-time undisputed bantamweight champ, homie. Miesha's going to come out of retirement and take that 145-pound belt, too.

Hollywood took a piss on my childhood, he will never be Hollywood to me, just a soulless man who sold out to the gang lifestyle.

She's a whiner Cus she filed an appeal?? That's retarded, it's a goddamn title fight and she lost because the girl cheated, her rocking her after the bell changed the fight. When you have a terrible ref afraid to his job your only recourse is to appeal, so obviously she appeals, her past record, being past her prime, etc. is unrelated. It's about that fight and having the course of your career held to the bad decision of a ref
