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:

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.
