The main event of UFC Fight Island 4 was a masterful performance from Holly Holm, who wants to get another title shot.With the type of performance she had beating Irene Aldana, she shouldn’t be too far from the track
Both being strong attackers, it took a while for either woman to find her rhythm as the fight began Holm was the first to land big punches, sticking her double left hand on multiple occasions Aldana countered on occasion, but it was Holm who did more damage and frequently ended the combination with a kick

Every time Aldana pressed and landed a solid punch, she ate two, three, four punches from Holm
Aldana stepped forward again, and again Holm took her to the canvas They didn’t stay there long, but it was obvious Holm got the fight back where she wanted it This is where she could continue to stick Aldana with punches and kicks, just passing her
Although Holm’s nose spilled blood at the start of the last frame, she kept up her frantic pace, pulling away from Aldana, then popping her with the jab and her sidekick. Aldana kept running, kept trying to land something, anything, but she couldn’t handle Holm’s pace and performance.
Holm continued to stick her and landed another strikeout with about a minute left in the fight Aldana got to her feet, but ate a kick to the face as she regained her footing Holm smelled blood and grabbed Aldana with several more punches, screaming as she attacked, punching Aldana all the way to the final horn
Even though she looked as strong as ever in the win, Holm insisted she still had a lot to learn and refused to call her next opponent.
“There are some things I have to learn obviously, but I always like to say that I like to learn from my wins, not my losses,” said Holm at the Octagon center.
“When I got to MMA I didn’t come to be a boxer in an octagon I became a mixed martial artist and it took a while I didn’t start any fights until about four weeks before my first fight in MMA So I’m still very green and I’m still learning So I just want to put it all together »
