Fighting style

Holm employs frequent lateral movement while working stiff jabs to an opponent’s head When standing within the pocket, she often waits to attack with counter-strikes, usually employing a straight left hand.Holm is also known for her punching combinations, typically done while her opponents are against the cage.

Former boxer Ana Julaton has described Holm as a “natural mover”, noting her footwork as an asset in setting up strikes.At UFC 193, Ronda Rousey took several blows while struggling to close the distance against Holm.

Holm uses a variety of kicking techniques, often targeting the body with a fast side kick, pushing back a rush with a low oblique kick, and attacking the head with a left high kick.
