There are still many skeptics among sports fans who believe that girls in MMA do not fight as spectacularly as men. But in this article, Centreforum.org will tell you about the toughest knockouts in the history of women’s mixed martial arts, which can convince even the most notorious skeptic.
Kaline Medeiros vs Stephanie Eggink
Medeiros and Eggink fought at the very beginning of their professional career in the Extreme Beatdown promotion, which is not widely known. Everyone believed that Stephanie, who had won many amateur boxing fights, would win this fight. However, the Brazilian was not going to give up so easily.
As soon as the gong sounded, Kaline hit her opponent with a low kick and then unleashed a crushing overhand on her. Of course, finishing was not required here, but the judge did not have time to stop the Brazilian athlete. Stephanie was then taken to the hospital, but, fortunately, the examination showed that everything went without a concussion. The girl recovered and was able to continue performing.
Sarah Kaufman vs Roxanne Modafferi
Roxanne Modafferi cannot be called the most famous athlete in MMA, but by the time of the title fight with Sarah Kaufman in the 2010 StrikeForce, she had a rather impressive record (15-5). The favorite of that fight was still the reigning champion with a statistic of 11-0 and a clear dominance over all rivals.
Roxanne held out until the third round, but Kaufman, defending herself from a painful hold performed by her opponent, made a slam. The throw was so powerful that Modafferi fainted.
Mauro Ranallo, who commented on the fight, said that this finish is one of the most brilliant in history, and the popular sports TV channel ESPN (read more about TV broadcasting on Telecomasia.net) included it in its selection of Moments of the Week.
Christine Stanley vs Katie Anita Runyan
Christine Stanley, just a few seconds after the start of the fight, had one of the most fantastic high kickings in MMA history, knocking out her opponent. The fight against Katie Anita Runyan took place at the Xplode Fight Series in 2014. The victory allowed Stanley to sign a contract with one of the largest female promotions Invicta FC. We advise you to watch the video of this blow, as it is simply impossible to describe it in words.
Holly Holm vs Ronda Rousey
The most epic, of course, is the knockout, which took place in the 2015 match in Australia at UFC 193. The undefeated Ronda Rousey (at that time the champion) and Holly Holm (the contender for the title) met at the stadium in Melbourne. The first athlete was at the peak of her career, but people practically did not believe in the second.
The result of this fight is most likely known to every MMA fan, however, we note that Holly’s crushing blow is currently the only female knockout that was awarded the title of Knockout of the Year at the World MMA Awards.
