Holm gets headkick knock out at Legacy FC 21


Holly Holm recently retired from the sport of boxing to pursue her career and focus on mixed martial arts. At a perfect 4-0 as a professional Holm made another step towards the UFC, earning a knockout of Allanna Jones at Friday's Legacy FC 21:

In a 145-pound women's bout, former boxing champion Holly Holm (4-0) remained undefeated, but it was a stunning high kick that did the damage rather than her highly touted hands. Holm delivered a devastating blow to score a second-round knockout win over Allanna Jones (2-3), the woman best known for welcoming transgender fighter Fallon Fox to professional MMA.

Jones held tough throughout the opening round, avoiding any serious damage from the vaunted striker. But in the second, a left high kick landed flush to the chin, and Jones went limp as she fell to the floor. Holm leaped on top with two more punches before she could be pulled off, but the kick had done all that was needed for the win.

Holly's accomplishments in boxing are as extensive as Nakamoto's in Muay Thai, although I think Holm has more titles, is it 17 titles that Holm has to Nakamoto's 10? As a fan I would love to see Holm vs Nakamoto though.

Awesome finish! However, you guys need to slow down. She has a lot of ground work to catch up on. If you want proof, watch the fight she had in Bellator (the one before this one).

I'm sure that I am not the only who feels that it is nice to see women with nice hard yet feminine bodies going out there and fighting with technical skills? We can all thank Muhammed Ali's daughter for starting this trend for both female boxers and MMA fighters alike. That being said, let me digress.  The US is probably one of the very few countries where our women can fight, but we can still see the little vestige of girl swatting that sometimes show up in their strikes. Brazilian women, fight like men, I don't see the same kind of striking that seems to be in American women.  It could be cultural.  Maybe Brazilian women are brought up to fight for themselves, just like guys?

That was a beautifully set-up KO. And working on TD defense and grappling at Jackson's, with training partners like Sarah, she's going to be a force @ 135.
