Holly Holm Scores Sixth Straight Victory at Route 66 Casino Hotel

Holly Holm Scores Sixth Straight Victory at Route 66 Casino Hotel

On Friday night thanks to a vicious combination of kicks to the head, body and legs of Angela Hayes, Holly Holm scored a victory by unanimous decision in the three-round main event of an MMA card at the Route 66 Casino Hotel.

Holm beat Angela Hayes in three rounds to extend her undefeated streak to six matches.

The win, in front of a near sell-out crowd of 2,300, extended Holm’s unbeaten record to 6 – 0.

However, Hayes was the first MMA fighter to make Holms fight the full three rounds. She produced some fantastic fighting, especially in the third round when she went for a choke hold on the ground. However, Holm, the bigger and stronger of the two, defended well and finished the fight on top.

After the fight Holm said, “Hayes is a lot stronger in the clinch, a lot stronger in a lot of things than all my previous fights combined. Which is good, I want that.”

The win gives Holm the opportunity to take part in a five-round title fight, probably next March, in the Albuquerque area against a “Brazilian ground specialist” who has not yet been named.

The ultimate goal for Holm is a contract with the UFC and a chance to fight Ronda Rousey, the UFC’s bantamweight champion.
