Champion Holly Holm (10-0) takes on Miesha Tate (17-5) in the co-main event at UFC 196 on Saturday, March 5. The fight takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be an amazing bout leading to the McGregor Vs. Diaz fight.
Holm shocked the world when she knocked out Ronda Rousey at 4:06 of the Second Round at UFC 193. Holm won Performance of the Night for her knockout of Rousey. Tate has won her last 4 fights. The last time she lost was in 2013 when Rousey beat her via submission at 4:02 of Round 3 at UFC 168.

Bet On Holly Holm Because…
Holm is a spectacular striker. Everybody knew what a great boxer she was before facing Rousey in one of the biggest upsets in UFC History. What nobody realized was what a great kick boxer she was. Holm knocked Rousey down with a vicious knee, not with a boxing left hook or straight cross. What’s really amazing about Holm’s performance against Rousey is that all 38 of the strikes that she landed on Ronda were considered significant strikes. That’s incredible.
Bet On Miesha Tate Because…
Tate figures to try and get the fight to the ground as soon as possible instead of taking shots from Holm. Only 17% of Tate’s wins have come via knockout. 35% of her wins have come via submission while 47% of her wins have come via decision. Tate has to utilize her ground game if she has any hope of beating the expertly skilled Holm in this match on Saturday night.
It’s tough to fight Holly Holm because she has the ability to defend against takedowns. In fact, Holm’s has defended takedown attempts 100% of the time. Tate is only good on takedowns 35.71% of the time.
Tate may try to box with Holm. That would be a disaster. Holm has a 4 inch reach advantage over Tate. Not only that, but Holm is perfect at setting her body before either striking with her fists or her feet. Any way you cut it, Miesha Tate should be in some trouble in this fight on March 5. Holly Holm’s skills are too broad for Tate to handle. I like Holm to knockout Tate in Round 2.
