MMA & Boxing: Taking a look!

I’m still trying to grapple with the sport of MMA (no pun intended).  It is certainly fast, exciting and tough.  With a growing fan base and movements to legalize MMA bouts in more states including, New York, I  thought it might be fun to post a few videos, courtesy of YouTube to see the great New Mexico fighter, Holly Holm in her first MMA bout as compared to Holly’s performance in a boxing match with Brooklyn’s own Belinda Laraquente.

From Holly Holm’s recent MMA debut bout vs. Christina Domke:

    Eh, I got bored with the MMA match and skipped down to watch the boxing. Great stuff, that. It’s amazing to me how much ENERGY Holly has. Belinda too! And I kept thinking that was Melissa Hernandez in the ring with Holly. You can see where Melissa learned her style, huh?
