When Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie fought for the inaugural female featherweight belt at UFC 208 in Brooklyn, GDR landing some killer strikes that rocked Holm pretty hard.
Unfortunately, they were well after the bell, and, um, that’s cheating.
Too bad the New York State Athletic Commission doesn’t agree. As per MMAFighting:
The New York State Athletic Commission has denied Holly Holm’s appeal of her controversial loss to de Randamie earlier this month in Brooklyn, N.Y, MMAFighting.com confirmed.
“After a review of the video footage of the bout, the New York State Athletic Commission determined that there was no clear error or violation of statute or rule by Referee Todd Anderson,” an NYSAC official told MMAFighting.com. “Therefore, the scoring and outcome of the bout will not be modified.”
