Undefeated knockout artist Holly Holm (6-0) will take on Brazilian kickboxer Juliana Werner (7-3) for the inaugural Legacy Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight title.
Holly Holm ventured into a career in mixed martial arts after being a multiple-time world champion boxer, even being regarded as one of the best female boxers of all time.
Holly Holm to face Juliana Werner for inaugural Legacy FC bantamweight title
Holm debuted with Legacy at Legacy FC 21 in July where she delivered a highlight-reel head kick knockout to Allanna Jones. She followed that performance with a TKO victory over Nikki Knudsen at Legacy FC 24 in October. Five of her six wins have come by way of TKO or KO.
Juliana Werner is a decorated kickboxer. Some of her accomplishments include being a six-time Brazilian National Champion, two-time South American Champion, Pan American Champion, and runner-up at the WAKO World Championships in 2013.
