    They said Please or Register to view links didn't deserve a title shot at Please or Register to view links. They said she didn't even belong in the cage. They said Rousey was unbeatable.

    And yet, much like Mike Tyson met his comeuppance at the hands of Buster Douglas in a stadium halfway around the world a generation ago, Holm, the former world boxing champion, put in a flawless performance against the biggest star in mixed martial arts in front of a potential record crowd in Melbourne, Australia.

    Holm (10-0) absolutely dominated the previously invincible Rousey in the main event of Please or Register to view links on Saturday night before finishing her with a brutal head kick knockout at the 59-second mark of the second round to claim the UFC bantamweight title.

    "I've never spent this much time in the gym than I have for any fight," said Holm, a 34-year-old JacksonWink MMA fighter. "It really all came together."

    Rousey (12-1) came out and pushed an aggressive pace from the outset, but it turned out not to be a smart tactic against a fighter who had 38 pro boxing fights under her belt before ever turning to MMA. Holm figured out Rousey's timing, used front kicks to keep her from moving in, and repeatedly tagged the stationary Rousey as she stood in front of Holm.

    By the later moments of the opening round, Rousey was bloodied, tiring, and sloppy. It got worse in the second round, as Holm continued to pick Rousey apart. A picture perfect head-kick dropped Rousey cold. Holm landed a right hand to the grounded Rousey before referee Herb Dean waved off the bout at 0:59.
