Holly Holm shocked the world at the biggest card in UFC history.

Holm defeated Ronda Rousey using a superb gameplan of strikes and kicks in less than three rounds at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia.

Rousey tried to pressure Holm, and almost had her in dangerous ground positions. But Holm survived and battered Rousey with strikes before finally knocking her down with a headkick.

Referee Herb Dean was forced to call the bout 59 seconds into the second round.

In the post-fight press conference, Holm said a rematch was “common sense.” UFC president Dana White also said a rematch sounded good as it’s probably what people want to see.
