Finally, in our main event of the evening here at UFC Fight Night 111 from Singapore, former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm takes on former 135-pound title challenger Bethe Correia.
Both women not really throwing anything early on as they both seem to want to counter strike. Holm then lands a couple of nice side kicks to the body of Correia, before landing a nice kick to the chin of Correia that wobbles her a bit. Holm comes inside but Correia lands a nice left hook that forces Holm to exit the pocket.
The round comes to an end with little to no activity going on.
Holm lands a nice side kick to the body and Correia tries to come inside with a few shots but is unable to get her distance right. Correia then comes in with a nice right hand and Holm responds with another side kick to the body. The ref gives a warning for lack of action to both women and they both pick up the volume a little bit.
Correia lands a hard spinning back fist that gets a great reaction from the crowd. Holm lands a nice side kick to Correia’s body, but Correia comes in hard and takes’s Holm’s back with a clinch. The round ends with Correia on Holm’s back against the fence.
Holm starts things off with a nice left hand straight down the middle. Correia showboats and asks Holm to bring it to her – and Holm obliges. Holm delivers a thunderous head kick that stuns Correia and she follows it up with a uppercut that forces the ref to step in and wave things off.
