Holy Holm was scheduled to fight Sarah Kaufman. How do you think that would go?

    3 rounds to none. About 60-80 total strikes landed by Holm and her opponent will look like she just took a quick breezy walk in the park because those punches couldn't penetrate water surfaces.

    Wow I predicted that fight would be made for Holm next.

    I figured they would give her a stylistic matchup.

    It would've been a great striking match.

    Either Holly wins by keeping Sarah on the end of her punches all night i.e. superior technical striking, footwork & movement, reach & range.

    The more likely scenario IMO, is that Sarah takes some hits getting inside and working dirty boxing/clinch-work, take down, g&p, sub attempts etc... overall keeping Holms on her heels and off balance. Basically battle of attrition chaining an aggressive multi prong attack.

    UFC wasn't going to risk Holly losing, and the chances were very good, as Sarah has beaten superior competition.

    It's a more intriguing match up at this point, actually. I think Holly wins, improving on her prior performances, most likely. It would have perhaps bridged the gap between her and Rousey a bit in terms of developing her MMA striking. Lost opportunity, though.

    I think Kaufman would've won a sloppy, ugly, in-fight against Holm.

    I don't think people remember the last couple rnds of Holly's last fight, she was wrapped up pretty tight and still didn't go down, she's a strong chick with a slow start and some confidence issues. She can beat sarah but rousey is a different story

    Not to sure, Holly may be the better athlete and Sarah would stand with her but Sarah is a very game opponent that would wade in and throw with Holly. The Sarah pressuring hard and if Holly cant keep her distance Sarah getting the better of the infighting is a pretty good description. If holly keeps it at the end of her punches and is a bit faster more polished then maybe similar to Sarah vs Eye.

    Not all that interested in Holly. the biggest argument against her is that she isnt ready for Rhonda, but she is 33 gonna be 34 make the fight with Rhonda now when it is still somewhat marketable. If she loses once she will never be a real viable contender as she may be 35 plus by the time she wins a few and gets back in contention. Just shows the shallowness of the competition,
