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.

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.
