Holly Holm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Holly Holm shocked the UFC world in November of 2015 with a stunning knockout of then bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. That knockout earned Holm an ESPY as “Upset of the Year”.

Holm went into the fight as an overwhelming under dog only to emerge as champion.

The fight marked a historic night as the UFC took their show to Australia.

Holm has since lost her title but, will be looking to regain it in the future.

First, the 10 and 1 Holm, has to dispose of 12 and 2 Valentina Shevchenko. The two will meet as the headliner of UFC on Fox 20 July 23 at the United Center in Chicago.
