Latest AXS TV “Inside MMA” episode is dedicated to new UFC champ Holly Holm

Even the casual viewer of UFC, and people who may not have even ever watched a fight (like myself), where shocked and intrigued upon hearing of Holly Holm’s surprising and crushing defeat of Ronda Rousey for the women’s bantamweight title this past Saturday at UFC 193, ending Rousey’s three-year reign as champ. In the wake of this, there are perhaps some who want to know more about Holly Holm, and AXS TV is aiming to help them by devoting this Friday’s episode of its series Inside MMA to the new UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.


The episode, called Inside MMA Special Edition: Holly Holm, will air an hour earlier than usual, at 11:30pm ET on AXS TV, and will include interviews with some of those who know Holm best, expert analysis of her defeat of Rousey and exclusive fight footage from her rise to prominence in the MMA world while fighting for Legacy Fighting Championship on AXS before signing with the UFC.

More from AXS TV:

“New UFC champion Holly Holm stunned the sports world Saturday night when she knocked out undefeated six-time defending bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in the second round at UFC 193. Holm’s amazing performance has launched her to international stardom, and AXS TV — the network where Holm rose to prominence in the MMA world as Legacy Fighting Championship’s first ever women’s titlist — will dedicate this Friday’s episode of INSIDE MMA to introducing the world to the newly crowned UFC champion through exclusive interviews with Holm and those who know her best, expert analysis of her fight plan, and devastating knockouts from Legacy that were remarkably similar to the result this past Saturday night.

“INSIDE MMA SPECIAL EDITION: HOLLY HOLM airs live this Friday, Nov. 20 an hour early at 11:30pE/8:30pP, with series hosts Kenny Rice and UFC Hall of Famer Bas Rutten. The show will look back at some of Holm’s greatest interviews from her numerous appearances on INSIDE MMA and expects to welcome Legacy President Mick Maynard, who had the vision to sign Holm in 2013, and more guests to be announced.

“Rutten, a former UFC title holder himself, will provide expert analysis on how Holm pulled off one of the biggest upsets in combat sports history. Then, AXS TV FIGHTS commentators UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich and “The Voice” Michael Schiavello, will join the show to share their unique insight of the champion, after having called all of Holm’s fights with Legacy, such as her thrilling head kick KO of Allana Jones at Legacy 21 and her dominant fifth round TKO victory over Juliana Werner to win her first MMA title at Legacy 30 in 2014.

“INSIDE MMA correspondent Ron Kruck will report from Holm’s hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, to capture the city’s response to the victory, including reactions from her teammates and training partners at Jackson-Wink MMA Academy.

“INSIDE MMA will also talk to ‘Vegas] Dave Oancea on what prompted his $20,000 bet on Holm that was reportedly cashed for $240,000. Some have called into question the authenticity of the ticket and Oancea will be on the show to answer all questions.”

UPDATE 11/18/15: AXS TV says that Holly Holm is now scheduled to appear in this special edition of Inside MMA. Holm will join a guest lineup that includes her longtime coaches Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn, who have trained her for the past 18 years; Legacy Fighting Championship president Mick Maynard, who signed Holm in 2013; and AXS TV FIGHTS commentators UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich and “The Voice” Michael Schiavello, who will share their unique insight of the champion after having called Holm’s fights with Legacy.
