Much like their first encounter, back in 2015, the second time Holly Holm and Raquel Pennington met in the Octagon was not an entertaining affair. After three rounds of clinching and little action, the former bantamweight scored a unanimous decision victory at UFC 246, one upping her first win over ‘Rocky’, which came via split decision. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the bout.

Man, one looks like she doesn't want to be in there and the other is ready to kill someone— Randa Markos (@randamma) January 19, 2020

The cage makes fights boring. Ring, soccer, kicks, stomps.— Jake Heun ジェイク・ヒューン (@JakeHeun) January 19, 2020
