The first fight night after UFC 253 in Abu Dhabi was a great show case. Holly Holm and Irene Aldana were able to put on a dope 5 round performance.
Before the fight started, many had doubted that Holm could still hang with upcoming fighters like Aldana. Despite such ideas floating out there, all the rumors were put to rest.
In the fight, Holm was able to dominate Aldana. By constantly moving, remaining at a distance she couldn't reach, and going for constant take downs, Aldana couldn't keep up with the veteran.
With Holm being the second bantamweight in the world, it creates an interesting conversation for a potential tittle shot with Nunes again or even a rematch with Germaine de Randamie.
