Submission Radio caught up with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm’s father to discuss her shocking victory against Ronda Rousey.

Holly Holm stunned the world on Saturday night with her phenomenal second round knockout win against former champion and UFC superstar Ronda Rousey.

Following her win, Submission Radio spent some time with the ‘Preacher's Daughter's' father, Roger, to discuss the fallout.

"That was Ronda scared to death," Roger Holm told Submission Radio. "She knew something like this was down the pipe. Ronda was trying to get her confidence back. Holly exposed Ronda, just in the realness of a fighter. And I think that that was tip, like - Holly started winning fans over here just because they know she's just a down, good to earth person. And maybe that was Ronda's way of trying to paint Holly in a light that gave her confidence, but it didn't work."
