Oh shit… As I retract my statement… Congrats @IronLadyMMA for the belt and @HollyHolm for the great fight. @ufc

That’s nuts, that fight needs to be contested and that ref reviewed.

I don’t know about that call. I thought @HollyHolm won that fight #ufc208

Am I being biased or does anyone else think the ref did a lousy job of enforcing the rules and that Holly got robbed?

— Leslie Smith (@LeslieSmith_GF) February 12, 2017

I can’t wait to see Cyborg take that belt. #ufc
