Holm landed a vicious head-kick knockout against Rousey on her way to becoming the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
Speaking to Fox Sports, Holm said: “I have to say that everything that we worked on presented itself in the fight. Every kind of grab that she tried to get and clinch on the cage. I have no spent this much time in the gym before any fight in my life.”
Holm dominated the fight with many UFC fans taking to Twitter to speak of their shock at how easily Rousey was defeated.
After the fight, Rousey was taken to hospital. UFC president Dana White has revealed Rousey did not suffer any injuries other than a split lip.
