Video of the Day - Jones v. Holm

Here is Holly Holm fighting Allanna Jones at Legacy FC 21 which took place on 7/19/13 in Houston, Texas. Holm trains out of Jackson-Winklejohn and has a pro boxing record of 33-2-3.

Holm (9-0, 2-0 UFC) has won via decision against Raquel Pennington and Marion Reneau in her UFC bouts. She looked better against Reneau in her most recent fight, but doesn't look 100% comfortable with the clinch and takedowns. Rousey is far and away the best women's fighter in those two departments, however Holms striking is as technical as you will see from a women's fighter. The fight is scheduled for UFC 195 on January 2, 2016.
