Arguably the greatest female boxer in history, Holly Holm is eager to test her skills inside the Ocatgon. The first UFC test is against Raquel Pennington in the co-main event of UFC 184. Go inside the camps of both fighters in this edition of Countdown.

Rousey (10-0), a former Olympic medalist in Judo, is coming off a 16 second knockout over Alexis Davis at UFC 175 in July. Prior to this win, the woman known as ‘Rowdy’ walked away with a TKO victory over fellow Olympian turned mixed martial artist Sara McMann a little over a minute into their title fight at UFC 170 in February.

Zingano (9-0) was last seen earning a violent TKO victory over Amanda Nunes at UFC 178 last month. This marked her second straight third-round stoppage victory, with her previous coming against former title contender Miesha Tate in their number one contenders bout at the TUF 17 Finale in April 2013. The woman known as ‘Alpha’ will enter this bout with eight career stoppage victories, with five ending by way of knockout.
