Striking 10/10

Having won numerous world boxing titles Holm made the jump to MMA with an incredible skill set; a skill set that was on full display when she upset Ronda Rousey to capture the UFC women’s bantamweight title. Holm may not possess devastating one-punch power but she is a technical assassin with a myriad of weapons at her disposal.

Wrestling/Grappling 8/10

Holm is a big, powerful bantamweight with incredible balance and while she may not come from a grappling background her defensive ability is top notch. She has proven to be incredibly hard to takedown and has even scored a couple takedowns of her own.

Submissions 7/10

Holm’s submission game remains a bit of an unknown. We’ve seen her get submitted late by Miesha Tate to lose the title but we’ve also seen her power out of a patented Rousey armbar attempt. She clearly has sound fundamentals on the ground but her lack of experience there is a weakness.

Athleticism/Conditioning 9/10

Holm is an incredible athlete and she has been competing at the professional level for 14 years now. Her success and longevity is directly related to her combination of natural athletic ability and tireless work ethic.

Fight IQ 9/10

Between her years of combat sports experience and the fact that she work with two of the best coaches in all of MMA Holm has a deep understanding of the fight game. Holm knows how and when to attack and she knows when to let the fight come to her. She is a very heady fighter.

Overall 43/50
