Holly Holm maintained her perfect record, extending to 7-0 Friday night, taking the Legacy FC women's bantamweight championship, via high kick in the 5th round.
The fight headlined Friday’s Legacy FC 30, which took place in Holm's hometown of Albuquerque, NM, and aired on AXS TV.
Holm, formerly one of the most decorated females in boxing, showed a wide variety of skills in the fight, including a number of solid high kicks, and in the fourth round, even a takedown.
Part of the reason Holm kicked so much was revealed afterwards, when an X-Ray showed Holm suffered a broken arm.
Post fight, rather than press for a fight with Ronda Rousey, Holm expressed interest in a PPV showdown with Cris 'Cyborg' Santos. Holm's management has not been able to come to terms with UFC to date.
