Video of the Day - Kimbo v. Mercer

Here is Kimbo Slice v. Ray Mercer in an exhibition bout contested under MMA rules at CFFC 5 which took place on 6/23/07 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It is believed that because the match was classified as an exhibition, it isn't officially in many record books.

Kimbo will next fight Dada 5000 at Bellator 149 which takes place on 2/19/16.

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 (10-0, 3-0 UFC) shocked the world as she destroyed Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 with a perfectly placed kick to the jaw. Prior to that kick, Holm had Rousey's number landing with counter lefts, elbows, kicks and even scored a takedown. It was by far the best Holm looked after previously winning twice via decision against Raquel Pennington and Marion Reneau in her UFC bouts.

Holm next fights Miesha Tate (17-5, 4-2 UFC) at UFC 196 in her first title defense.
