Amanda Nunes Head-Kick KO’s Holly Holm In Stunning First-Round Destruction

Amanda Nunes just solidified her place as the greatest fighter in the history of WMMA with a stunning head-kick KO of Holly Holm.

To score a knockout of this nature on the fighter responsible for perhaps the most famous head-kick KO in the history of the UFC is a simply astounding feat.

At UFC 239, Amanda Nunes proved her greatness against a former UFC champion in quick and brutal fashion, scoring her fourth successive bantamweight title-defense with perhaps her most impressive knockout to date.

Nunes now holds first-round finishes over the six fighters to have ever held the 135lb or 145lb belts in the UFC or Bellator, Cris Cyborg, Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Germaine de Randamie, Julia Budd, and now, Holly Holm.
