Tonight, in Chicago, the second of two highly anticipated women’s bouts took place in the featherweight division as rising Australian star Megan Anderson made her UFC debut opposite “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holly Holm.
RECAP: Quick start to this one–Megan lands two solid shots, a knee, and right hand! Holly clinches and slows down Anderson. Round one is a close one– Holly landed a nice front kick down the middle that tagged Megan. Second round, Holm is showing some new tools– she takes Anderson down and dominates on the ground! Finishes the round with some beautiful ground and pound. Third round, Holly is teasing with kicks. She gets a body lock takedown and works from top position. Anderson teases a sweep and HH hops off, back on the feet creating distance. Round ends with Holly taking Anderson!
