Legacy FC 30 results: Holly Holm knocks out Juliana Werner (head kick) in Albuquerque

Legacy FC

In news that will surprise no one, Holly Holm improves to 7-0 in her budding mixed martial arts (MMA) career.

Former three-division boxing champion and top female bantamweight mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Holly Holm (7-0) kept her perfect record intact by knocking out Juliana Werner in the Legacy Fighting Championship (LFC) 30 headliner on Friday night (April 4, 2014) inside Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

It was a complete blowout.

"Julie" demonstrated one hell of a chin and took "The Preacher's Daughter" someplace she had never been inside the cage -- and that's the fifth round. Unfortunately, the Brazilian was outstruck and outclassed for the duration of the fight, unable to match Holm's superior blend of speed, power, and technique, finally succumbing to a fifth-round head kick knockout (watch it here).

Here are the full Legacy FC 30 results:

Holly Holm def. Juliana Werner via technical knockout
Flavio Alvaro def. Donald Sanchez via unanimous decision
Ray Borg def. Nick Urso via submission (rear-naked choke)
Enrique Briones vs. Adrian Cruz ruled a draw
Martin Sano def. Clint Roberts via submission (rear-naked choke)
Kamarudeen Usman def. Lenny Lovato via technical knockout

The event aired live on AXS TV.

After her championship win in front of a raucous hometown crowd, Holm expressed interest in a possible Cris Cyborg pay-per-view (PPV) fight later this year (more on that here). But is she better suited for a championship showdown against Ronda Rousey?

Perhaps...

As the UFC women's bantamweight champion continues to clean out her division, the promotion has been scouring the globe for possible title contenders (even here). Not that it doesn't already have a handful of talented bantamweights already in its employ, but the division is still in its infancy.

Every little bit helps.

Hopefully, the second round of negotiations between UFC and Team Holm don't end the way the first round did, with UFC President Dana White effectively slamming the door on "The Preacher's Daughter."

Time will tell.
