Previously undefeated Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey came out of her most recent match with Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm in a daze. Prior to the UFC match, she’d been cocky about the fight, even going so far as to declare that the underdog Holm could not possibly knock her out.

Holly Holm proved Rousey wrong, though, and succeeded in knocking her out just 59 seconds into the second round, shocking UFC fans around the world.

Ronda Rousey has been a crowd favorite, and the odds were on her side as she entered the fight in defense of her UFC bantamweight title. However, from the beginning of the match, Holm was clearly dominating and the fight was hers.

During the fight for the UFC bantamweight title, Rousey showed the usual aggression that fans have come to know and admire, and continuously came at Holm with no holds barred. Holm proved that she could hold her own against Ronda Rousey, however, deftly dodged her attacks throughout the first round and continuously initiated her own strikes.

Though fans expected Rousey to take Holly Holm down by engaging her in a clinch hold, any attempts to do so were neutralized and Holm even used the opportunities to bring Rousey down herself.

Ronda Rousey’s aggressive, snarling attacks were met by Holm’s calm demeanor and after the first round came to an end and the second round began, Rousey chose to make no adjustments to her corner position, charging straight for Holm as the match started.

Then, the shock off the night happened. 59 seconds into round two, Holm hit Rousey in the jaw with a left straight and followed it up immediately with a perfect left high kick that targeted Rousey’s neck. Her leg met its target, and with that, the previously undefeated Ronda Rousey was down and out cold with a knock-out.

After receiving the belt, the newly crowned UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm said, “We figured the pressure was coming… I have to say everything we worked on presented itself in the fight. Every route she tried to get.”

With that, Rousey’s previous achievement of being the longest reigning woman champion in the UFC is relinquished to Polish striker Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and fans everywhere have learned that no one can truly be unbeatable.
