Sometimes it’s not good to poke the bear, Bethe learned that the hard way.
During the main event of Fight Night 111, Bethe Correia got some not so great advice from her corner. They told her not to respect Holly. As a result, Bethe came out and after landing a couple of punches laughed. Then she made that one classic mistake that seems to haunt fighters in highlight videos all over the world. She taunted and waved Holly to “Come on!” Holy Holm obliged and immediately separated Bethe from consciousness with a head kick, and a savage left hand.
For Holly, it was a much-needed win, in a dire situation. It showed her excellence, and her ability to time the head kick once again. I’m guessing if Edmund was watching, it gave him nightmares.
For Holly, not only did the knockout mark a huge victory in her career but keeps her very much in the mix at both 135 and 145 pounds. You can check out the savagery for yourself, courtesy of ESPN’s Instagram.
