Winkeljohn: Holm Will KO Tate In The Second Round

0

Holly Holm is fighting Miesha Tate on Saturday, and her coach Mike Winkeljohn has a prediction for how it will finish. On Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Winkeljohn gave credit to Tate, but said Holm will finish her just like she finished Ronda Rousey.

“Second round KO for Holly Holm,” Winkeljohn predicted. “Yeah a lot like [the Rousey fight]; just as dominant.”

“[Holm]’s firing on all 12. She’s a high-tech European racecar. Same going in for Ronda, I won’t lie, we were confident for that one as well. I think Holly is going to dominate the fight and do real well. There are a lot of things you need to watch for and Miesha is very strong and very dangerous in many ways, but yeah she’s [Holm] been looking good so far.

“You know, [Tate]’s number one for a reason,” Winkeljohn continued. “She’s been around for a long time and she’s pretty darn good everywhere. She hits hard; she’s tapping people out. Her wrestling is very good. You see that she’s beaten jiu jitsu people, she’s beaten wrestlers and she’s beaten strikers so she’s very good at what she does.”

UFC 196 takes place on March 5, 2016 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
