‘Ah, the good old days.
Holly Holm (42-U.S.), who had just pulled off the “greatest upset” in UFC women’s history, had been knocked out by Myra Bueno Ciuba (32-Brazil), who was 10 years younger. It cast a cloud over her title defense.
Holm suffered a submission loss in their women’s bantamweight bout at UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Bueno Silva on Nov. 16 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. After a close first round, she lost control in the second round and was unable to escape a submission attempt. 토토 가입머니
As the No. 3 ranked bantamweight, the loss to the No. 10-ranked Siuba is expected to cause her to drop in the rankings. He is 2-2 in his last four fights. She didn’t fight at all in 2021 and announced her comeback last May, losing to Caitlyn Vieira. Her skills have clearly declined as she enters her 40s.
After entering the UFC Octagon in March 2015, Holm won two fights before challenging Ronda Rousey, who was described at the time as a “dominant champion” who “could fight any man”. She wobbled Rousey with clever striking and scored a dramatic knockout with a flurry of punches and head kicks.
However, he was quickly stripped of the belt. He failed to defend his title in March 2016, losing to Miesha Tate. Three straight losses, including this one, kept him away from the championship picture.
She remained dominant in the bantamweight division well into her mid-to-late 30s. She lost to the superpowers of Cyborg and Amanna Nunes, but showed her mettle with wins over Raquel Pennington and Irene Aldana, among others. But the loss ended her chances of a title shot.
With a win over Holm, the top of the UFC women’s bantamweight division is expected to change. Ciuba’s rise to the top has made her a strong contender for the bantamweight title vacated by Amanda Nunes’ retirement. Holm, who is coming off a loss and feeling the loss of years, could fall to the middle of the pack.
