Correia's taunting results in head kick, Holm KO. Taunting doesn't pay off in MMA

Genuine martial arts teach humility. Humility is a true facet of strong character, especially for those who have actual skills and power that could justify otherwise. Well, Bethe Correia apparently didn't take the lesson from her early classes as she attempts to lure Holly Holm by taunting her to box. My analysis is that Correia was thinking about taunting when she should have been working on a offensive strategy. As a result, Holm executes a faint and connects with a head kick to Correia in the third round of UFC Fight Night's main event in Singapore.

Let it never be said that a solid attack to the temple isn't lethal.

Here's the sequence of events. Enjoy.
