Miesha Tate

At UFC 193 Holly Holm proved to MMA fans that her striking is a thing to be feared.

While Holm’s credentials in the kickboxing and boxing worlds are nothing to scoff at, many were curious to see how Holm dealt with an experienced grappler such as Rousey. Of course as everyone knows by now, Holm outstruck Rousey, and even took ‘Rowdy’ down en route to a 2nd round KO win.

While the UFC brass were hoping to see Holm vs. Rousey II at UFC 200, due to Rousey’s filming schedule she wouldn’t have enough time to prepare for the bout.

This lead to the UFC booking Holm vs. Miesha Tate in the co-main event of UFC 196 on March 5th.

Ahead of that fight, striking each Gil Martinez believes that Miesha Tate can not only outstrike Holly Holm, but even KO the champ.

He spoke to MMAJunkie:

“I’d actually love to work with Miesha for the next fight. I think I could be a good part of her team and definitely teach her how to beat Holly. Sure, outstrike her and even knock her out. Anything can happen.”

How do you see this fight playing out on March 5th?
