After suffering three consecutive losses since her shocking win over Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm (10-3) finally got back on track with an absolutely devastating knockout victory over Bethe Correia (10-2-1) at UFC Fight Night 111.
Holm was tentative coming into the fight, opting to wait for Correia to strike and counter. But after a quick stoppage for the ref to tell Correia and Holm to get the action started, Holm attacked ferociously in the third round and put Correia to sleep with a nasty head kick before finishing it with a vicious hook to the jaw.
Holm has been on the wrong end of losses in her first title defense to Miesha Tate where she was winning before getting caught in a submission and being put to sleep. She then lost a decision contest to Valentia Shevchenko and a controversial decision loss in the inaugural Featherweight Championship contest to Germaine de Randamie.
Correia hasn’t had much luck since losing to Rousey back in August 2015. A loss to Raquel Pennington, win over Rachel Eye and draw with Marion Reneau have plummeted her stock in the women’s bantamweight division.
