This photo perfectly encapsulates Holly Holm’s belt-winning performance at UFC 193.

Holm shocked the world by not only defeating Ronda Rousey to become the new UFC women’s bantamweight champion, but absolutely outclassing the fighter who many believed to be invincible in her division.

The Preacher’s daughter out-struck Rousey for the entirety of the fight and eventually knocked her out with a stunning head kick early in the second to become the new champion.

MMA Fighting photographer Esther Lin managed to press click on her camera at the perfect moment to take what will undoubtedly end up as one of the best sports photos of 2015.
