Holm should not be proud of her performance, it was embarrasing.... If not for the accidental KO, I'm not sure if the judges would've even be able to score the fight
Didn't watch the match cos I don't care enough about women's mma but I just checked the highlights.
The KO didn't look accidental at all. It was a fake - an advanced technique that elite strikers like Stephen Thompson (and now Holm) utilise effectively. Check the subtle way in which her head drops to confuse her opponent. It works by changing the direction of the strike relative to the direction that the opponent anticipates it to land in.
Holly faked low with her body language and then went high for the head. The kick she threw was a variant of the 'Question Mark' kick.
All in all, that Brazilian looking chick got fucked nicely.
