Default Re: Germaine de Randamie defeated Holly Holm

once again it appears that Holly fights not to win, but instead, fights not to lose. In my opinion, and I watched the fight, Randamie through harder blows, while Holly through more. Holly was also stuffed in all 4 of her take down attempts.

It was a close fight. However, Randamie did hit Holly after the buzzer following two of the rounds. The ref should have taken a point the first time, and perhaps disqualified her the 2nd time. Instead all she got was a warning, even after the 2nd time.

I think it is time for Holly to step back, consider training in another camp, or retire. As for Randamie, Cyborg is going to eat her alive.

It became cursed once Holly took it from Ronda, it's rightful owner. All others who possess it will have the Rousey curse on them

Except that's not what happened. It was a competitive fight, with many people (including lots of pro fighters on Twitte) saying Holm should have got the win. You don't have to agree with that but don't say it was something it wasn't. DeRandamie did not "put the hurt all day long" on her, that's absurd. We all saw the fight. Fine to say you think DeRandamie won, lots of folks agree with you but no reason to misrepresent the facts.

This is the kind of apocalyptic comment that so many fighters and commenters in MMA decry. No one knows if or how she'll bounce back but to start declaring she's a "one hit wonder" is premature. It's a short step form there to "she was never any good or she never did anything".

It's this instant dismissal and turning of the back that makes a lot of people in the sport have a love/hate relationship with fans. A fighter with Holly's pedigree and background deserves a bit better, in the eyes of people who are in MMA as a profession - fighters, writers, commentators etc.

It's, of course, your right to say whatever you like and you haven't upset me. I'm not criticizing you, I'm just saying this impression of fickle, sour MMA fans lives large among the pro MMA community.

I believe this is Gina's comment on the fouls not being called:

Not that she isn't biased...

What a meh fight though. Holm either hitting air or hugging GDR all-day, and GDR "I loove to brawl" counter-striking.

Could have been a draw if the ref deducted a point, which he should have done the second time.

GDR would make a great session wrestler.Zweig should try to recruit her for some competitive videos.

This article is very enlightening. Bottom line - Bell (actually horn, but "bell" is used in the rules) doesn't end the round officially, the ref does:

Should Holly seriously think about going back to straight up boxing?
