Holly Holm blames 'intentional' cheap shots for UFC 208 loss

Holly Holm blames 'intentional' cheap shots for UFC 208 loss

In addition to UFC 208 Saturday night, they have headlined numerous most recent high-profile UFC shows, including UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia, where 56,214 saw Holm upset Rousey; UFC 200 where Amanda Nunes won the bantamweight title against Miesha Tate, and UFC 207 where Nunes successfully defended against Rousey.

Germaine de Randamie would go on to win a unanimous decision over Holly Holm in which all three judges scored the fight 48-47 for de Randamie. Holm eventually landed a head kick on de Randamie near the end of the round, buckling her opponent, but it wasn't enough to knock her out in the closing seconds. No points were deducted in either case, though de Randamie was issued a very stern reprimand by the referee the second time it happened.

With Romero expected to run through Bisping when they eventually meet, this sets up a rematch of the Romero/Souza classic of 2015, in which Romero was awarded a controversial split decision victory.

"It was intentional and it was after the bell", Holm said as reported by Champions.

Jacare Souza's win over Tim Boetsch doesn't move him any closer to a title shot because champion Michael Bisping is now trying to delay his inevitable matchup with Yoel Romero, which means Souza will likely have to fight again to stay fresh, make some money and maintain his place in line.

"I'm not running from her, but yes, I know that I need to work on my skills if I'm going to fight the best pound-for-pound female in the world", Anderson said.

She bemoaned the fact that she couldn't follow up on two punches that rocked De Randamie, and expressed regret over wasting time by pressing De Randamie to the cage. It was in the heat of the moment. "Never did I punch around or over the referee to deliver a cheap shot on Holly". "I want to fight everybody and I will fight anybody so we will see who is next". "I apologized. I'm not like that". Since Cyborg is now awaiting the results from the United States Anti-Doping Agency's review of a potential doping violation, she doesn't know when she'll be able to fight de Randamie for the belt.

The 41-year-old MMA legend looked to have lost at least two rounds against Brunson, but was instead granted a unanimous decision win by all three judges.

"It wasn't meant for me to hit her after the bell", the Netherlands native said.

As Anderson herself pointed out, Cyborg is no longer listed as an Invicta fighter on the Invicta FC website, and Anderson herself has yet to be signed to the UFC. "If this other girl is injured, I like making good fights for my fans". This is my job.

"The New York State Athletic Commission maintains a roster of highly qualified referees for assignment to bouts held in New York State", the NYSAC told MMA Fighting in a statement through spokesperson Laz Benitez.
