Just rewatched Ronda vs Holly

Apart from Nunes v Cyborg wmma has never been that exciting again.

Zhang v. Jedrzejczyk?
Far better fight than both of em

EDIT: saw some sherbros preceded me, guess it's kind of an obvious fight to mention.
 
There were 5 finishes on the prelims including a spinning back kick to the body KO
Haha you’re right! I remember them now I’ve looked them up. I was also at the Whittaker vs Brunson card which had the no finishes on the undercard so I must have got the two cards mixed up. Embarrassing!
 
I was in the arena for my first ever UFC event. It was such a crazy feeling as Holly started to take over in the first round. Good job because the rest of the card was pretty bad and didn’t have any finishes until the main card if I remember correctly. Met Cain Velasquez as well which was nice.

Same, i made it Vegas for 168 so this was my second event. Absolutely epic, probably the best sporting moment I've witnessed live
 
When I watched it again in hindsight, I realized Ronda was so dominant because all her previous opponents were smaller than her.

As soon as she fought someone the same size, she couldn't dominate.
 
Then Holly tried to take down Kayla, and that did not work out so well

It was a completely dominant performance by Holly. Ronda looked utterly helpless in there. Just completely outclassed. It was pretty shocking to watch to be honest. I think most everyone expected her to be able to take Holly down and dominate her on the mat. Holly just absolutely whooped her ass.
 
Never seen Holly as deadly since that match.
