The fight continued on the ground, and Tate very nearly finished the bout with a rear naked choke in round two, and Holm looked shaky but not defeated just yet. This fight was a huge contrast for ‘The Preacher’s Daughter,’ who had smashed Ronda Rousey in November last year.
The third was a much better round for Holm, who pleased her coaches Mike Winklejohn and Greg Jackson by stuffing all Miesha’s takedown attempts. She also got the better of the striking exchanges.
The fourth round was another very effective round for the champion, but she looked nowhere near getting a finish. Then came the final round. Miesha Tate locked up a tight rear naked choke in the last seconds of the round, and Holm was out!
