    Boxing champion Holly Holm pulled off a massive upset victory over heavy favorite Ronda Rousey in UFC 193, stunning the women's bantamweight champion in the second round with a knockout via powerful kick to the head.
    Holms was, at 8 to 1, the largest betting odds underdog in UFC history.
    The fight featured a brisk pace with Holm throwing and landing powerful shots to the unbeaten Rousey's head, bloodying and frustrating the champion by the end of the first round.
    Rousey upped her aggression and attempted to take the second round, chasing the dancing Holm around the ring. Holm stayed cool and – showing her prowess as a boxing champion – delivered several of her 38 significant strikes, before throwing the stunned Rousey to her knees. When the shaken Rousey got to her feet the challenger delivered a massive kick to the head that instantly knocked the former champion out and dropped her flat on her back to the canvas.
    Holm immediately jumped on the motionless Rousey, delivering three direct shots to her head before the referee stopped the fight. A thrilled Holm ran around the ring as Rousey received medical treatment.
    After the fight, Holm shared, “Everything we worked on presented itself in the fight. Every grab [Rousey] tried to get, on the cage, I have not spent this much time in the gym before any fight in my life.”
    In Rousey's previous six defenses of her title, she had been taken beyond the first round just once, by Miesha Tate in their rematch in 2013, and her last three fights had lasted a combined one minute and 47 seconds.
    Rousey was taken to the hospital after the fight. She will have plastic surgery to repair her seriously busted lips.
    In the end, Holm was clearly the better fighter as she connected on 72% of her strike attempts while Rousey connected on just 30% of her strike attempts. Holms is 10-0. Rousey is now 12-1. A rematch is expected soon.
