SHOCKING UPSET: Holly Holm upsets Ronda Rousey by TKO to claim UFC title
Holm dominated the fight from the opening bell, with her boxing skills pushing Rousey much harder than her most recent title defenses.
In the second round, Holm dropped Rousey to the mat with a kick to the neck. After Rousey hit the mat, Holm finished off the former champion with a flurry of punches.
"Getting in here, I just felt so much support I thought, 'How can I not do this with all this support?'
"I had the best coaching, from standup to grappling to wrestling. I have to say, everything we worked on presented itself in the fight.
"Every grab she tried to get, on the cage, I have not spent this much time in the gym before any fight in my life," Holm said after the fight.
