Saturday morning, American fight fans tuned into ‘UFC Fight Night: Singapore’ for a very early, but very exciting, morning of fights. In the main event, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm picked up an impressive KO win over Bethe Correia to snap a 3-fight skid going back to March of 2016, when she lost the women’s bantamweight title to Miesha Tate at UFC 196.
Following her loss to Tate, Holm dropped a unanimous decision to Valentina Shevchenko in Chicago before then dropping another unanimous decision to Germaine de Randamie in a failed bid for the women’s featherweight title. Now however, back in the win column, Holm will be looking to once again climb the women’s bantamweight rankings once again.
Below you can see a compilation of reactions from the MMA community regarding Holm’s win:
Bethe is tailor-made for Holm to run game on. #UFCSingapore
