Holly Holm

ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (KRQE)- Holly Holm is back in the win column.

The former UFC Bantamweight Champion scored a third round knockout against opponent Bethe Correia at UFC Fight Night 111 in Singapore Saturday.

It was a fight that was a little sluggish on action until Holm delivered a devastating kick to Correia’s head to end the fight at the 1:09 mark in round three.

The victory ended a three-fight losing streak and marked Holm’s return to the bantamweight division after taking one fight as a featherweight.

Holm improved her record to 11-3 with the win and will get $50,000in performance bonus money. Correia drops to 10-3-1.

Holm can start her journey to try and regain the bantamweight title she first secured with a stunning upset of Ronda Rousey in November of 2015.

Holm lost the belt in her first title defense against Miesha Tate in March of 2016.
