Holly Holm broke her arm in Friday’s Legacy Fighting Championship 30 win in Albuquerque, N.M., the fighter revealed on Saturday.

Holm wrote on Twitter that she blocked a head kick in her fight against Juliana Werner, and doing so led to a broken bone in her left arm.

“Whoa! What a night?! Yes this is what happens when you LAZILY block a head kick,” the fighter wrote along with an x-ray photo. “Arm is feeling ok…Ego not so much.”

Holm dominated the fight from bell to bell until the fifth round where she landed a head kick that dropped Werner, leading into strikes on the ground that ended the contest at the 1:50 mark.

The win earned Holm the Legacy FC women’s bantamweight title, and improved her record to a perfect 7-0.

    Sure she did. Next Lesnar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • shakejunt

      for someone who doesn’t care, you sure seem to care…

  • Alex

    Well, now she knows what would it feel like if she ever fights Ronda.

    Oh wait…she’ll never get to Ronda, even if the UFC signs her for peanuts that she deserves – she’ll get beat on her feet by girls like Eye and Nunes…Alexis would outbrawl her and then will pound her out in the mount.

    • Baller31

      She’d ko Rousey, who has horrible standup.

      • Alex

        Yeah, so horrible that she’s the only woman in the UFC to knock an opponent down LOL.

        Holm’s boxing credentials don’t mean crap in MMA, that’s REAL fighting here, not the hands only matches with clown gloves and 1000 rules.
        In MMA she hasn’t beat anybody worth mentioning, so Ronda anyway she wants (even though she’ll probably submit her with the1st round armbar)

        • Baller31

          UFC doesn’t even try to recruit the top women’s mma fighters, their only interest is padding rouseys record. Obviously boxing translates well to mma, if you’re well rounded. Anderson silva, nick Diaz, and dos santos are just a few mma fighters who largely incorporate boxing into their fighting. And in mma, Rousey also hasn’t beaten anyone worth mentioning.

          • Seth

            She beat Kaufmann, Carmouche and Budd. So unless you have some knowledge about WMMA, I would advice stepping down from comments like that.

          • Baller31

            Get back at me when she beats cyborg, who’s been calling her out for a year

          • Alex

            Wow, you know nothing at all about MMA, don’t you?

            Steroid cheating mutant Cyborg fights in a different weight category, so she calling out Ronda doesn’t mean crap to anyone.

          • Baller31

            Really?? Did you not know Rousey said she’d move up a class to fight Carano? And cyborg offered to fight at 135. It’s not about weight, it’s about being scared.

          • Alex

            Carano, unlike Cyborg, is not a steroid cheater – she was a legit fighter and hadn’t she made a stupid mistake and gave up the mount position, she could’ve beat a roid shemale to oblivion.

            Cyborg doesn’t deserve any exemptions from the REAL champ.

          • Maddawgmar

            To be fair Carano made the mistake, it’s her fault she lost. She had Cy’roid’ in the mount and stood up, she could have dropped some heavy shots that may have ended the night.

          • Alex

            Yep, that’s exactly what I said.
            Of course it’s her fault that she lost, but that stupid mistake only shows that she would beat Cyborg 9 times out of 10.

            Cyborg only relies on her muscles, which she gained by hormones and/or crap like that. Carano is natural and is a real warrior, and the only reason she didn’t fight Cyborg again is because she started a Hollywood career – obviously better money than Strikefarce could’ve afforded her atthat time.

          • Thebestever

            hah you caught that too carano did give up that mount xD i like carano i really wonder if she improved her striking game since her long layoff honestly id perfer gina with the title but i just dont see her beating a beast like ronda withough vastly improving her fight game.

          • Maddawgmar

            Wrong, she said she would meet Carano at a catchweight. She respects Carano, so sure she would go the extra mile for her. Yet Cy’roid’ hasn’t earned that consideration IMO.

          • Maddawgmar

            Get back to me when Cyborg comes to her, instead of Rousey comes to her. Cyborg has all to gain and nothing to lose, so she should make the trek to 135.

          • Seth

            Yeah, awesome to call someone out, when you cant even fight her. Get back at me when Cyborg drops roids and try to make 135 without “dying” as she and her stupid manager were so loud about. At this point its not Ronda that has to prove something, Ronda is on top today. Cyborg was thrown down from the top when she got caught. And lately when she got demolished. So its more like Cyborg has to prove she’s still the best. Not Rousey.

          • Alex

            LOL you stupid moron, give me the name of the “top women fighter” of Ronda’s division they didn’t recruit.

            BTW boxing is just one of the tools of the fighters you’ve mentioned, and they actually used it in fighting against top opponents. Every tool translates well to MMA – unless it doesn’t LOL, and the credentials in any martial arts don’t mean a rat’s ass unless you’re able to prove it against some serious opposition and not cans that Holm has fought.

            Until she proves herself, she’s a nobody in a fighting world, doesn’t deserve any special treatment – and those who believe she’s danger to Ronda are only morons like you.
            Me and the UFC know better.

          • Baller31

            You’re a f&@$ing douchebag riding Dana’s junk and swallowing whatever he feeds you. She is a danger to Rousey, and cyborg would smash Rousey as well, which is why Rousey is ducking her. And boxing is just one of the tools holms uses too. Maybe watch a fight and get a clue.

          • Alex

            Huh huh, your butt hurts so freaking much that you call me names that your buddies in the schoolyard call you when you beat you up on a daily basis.

            You can say as many times as you want that Holm is a threat, that still doesn’t make you right not for even a glimpse.
            I watched her fights, and these fights were against total cans, so who cares?
            Ronda would’ve knocked all those cans out as well, just like she knocked out an actual TOP fighter McMann, who accomplished in MMA 1000 times more than Holm.

          • Baller31

            You started with the names homeboy, since articulating a defensible argument eludes you. I guess you’re the one who is butthurt. As far as getting beat up, I don’t know what that’s like, maybe you should tell me?

          • Alex

            By that brainless comment, I assume that you agree with every word I just said, because you chose to refer only to the fact that I revealed your true identity as a stupid, beat-up kid.

            Apparently you see now, that Holm’s can beating and experience on a boxing ring mean nothing nothing in a real fighting game.
            Now say thank you, because I made you a bit less dumber than you were before LOL

          • Baller31

            Less dumber??! Wow, that 5th grade education is really paying off! And experience ‘on’ a boxing ring? You need to gain quite a bit of intelligence, and some English language skills, before insulting anyone’s intellect. In the future I will be sure to use small words so that you can understand. Now say thank you for the grammar lesson.

        • Thebestever

          you guys are both idiots and know nothing about mma cat dropped meisha wtf are you talking about only women fighter to knockdown lol i actually fight and can tell ronda has improved her striking alot but hollys is still better and so is cats and cyborgs in all reality womans mma is not stacked at all and the ufc still cant sign the best fight for them which is cyborg vs ronda

    • shakejunt
