When the UFC revealed that Ronda Rousey would be defending her Women’s Bantamweight Championship against Holly Holm back in August, nobody asked, “Will Rousey be able to beat her?” They asked, “How long will it take Rousey to beat her?” After all, Rousey’s last opponent Bethe Correiaonly lasted 34 seconds in the Octagon with Rousey before getting knocked out. There was no way she was going to lose, right?

WRONG. After landing punches on Rousey repeatedly in the first round of the fight, Holm got the best of her in the second round and knocked her out. Here are the final moments of the fight:

Rousey drops to 12-1 with the loss. She was reportedly taken to a local hospital after the fight.
