Late last night, Legacy Fighting Championships held their 30th MMA event at Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In the main event of the evening, former boxing world champion and pride of Albuquerque, Holly Holm defeated Julianna Werner by head kick KO in the fifth and final round to secure the Legacy FC Women’s Bantamweight Championship.
It was yet another a sensational performance from Holm who secured her 7th straight victory in MMA. Holm completely outclassed Werner on the feet before closing the lights out with yet another highlight reel KO. While the MMA community was buzzing about the potential UFC debut of Holm after her incredible performance, it seems that there is going to be a delay to that potential date.
According to SouthWestFightNews, Holly Holm suffered a fractured arm during the bout. Here is the xray of the fracture:
Here is a picture of Holm in the hospital that claims she broke her arm in the first round:
As of publishing there is no word on how long this could keep Holm out of action, but you have to believe it will be quite some time before she steps back into a cage.
Holm currently has one more fight on her Legacy contract, so we will see if she defends her belt when she is healed, or moves on to the UFC.
