    As it was an MMA fight, I don't see what it really does to boost women's boxing, per se. But good for him, them, and it.

    Boxing doesn't have somebody like Carano or Rousey to put them on the map and then make them PPV stars, a lot of good female boxers in the olympics this year that will turn pro next year but the pay is so much less and so is the notoriety, can you ever see boxing putting a womens boxing match on a PPV headliner? That being said, can't wait for Holm to outclass Tate.

    Just saw the Julie Kedzie vs Miesha Tate fight and Tate might be the first death in the UFC. Holly is going to seriously hurt that ass

    I'm not sure how they'll spin it, but this is the opinion of he WBC president and other influential figures in women's boxing, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

    Also, I'm glad to see a class act like Holly getting some mainstream exposure, instead of the latest UFC loudmouth.

    I never realized that she had one boxing glove on, ala UFC 1. Now I have more respect for her.

    when i first saw that on sherdog, i couldn't help but laugh

    i've been saying this. tate's gonna get her ass royally kicked

    taking punishment isn't a good strategy against an opponent like holm

    i wonder why they wrapped it with some string, instead of just putting it on

    and it shoulda been an oven mitt with the way things ended up

    Press for either is good - who cares which sport it gets people into (tho this is the better one :p).

    All these idiots thinking it was boxing that won her the fight. We always have to repeat ourselves because there are so many out there. Holly won because of her skills in MMA. Not boxing. Without her grappling/sub defense (that she trained for many years) she would have never been able to keep it standing and would have been subbed easily. The boxing fans love to ignore that fact. Sure boxing and distance played a part but that wouldn't mean anything without grappling.

    Dear God!




    Is kicking allowed in boxing matches? Because that's how Holly dropped Honda.

    Really stupid way to look at the fight. It was an MMA fight. If Holly hadn't trained hard for years in MMA, Ronda would have tossed her and sub'ed her in seconds. Holly was so successful with her boxing, because she is a mixed martial artist able to keep the fight standing where she has an advantage. It's not like any boxer can come in with no training and win.
