Holly Holm lost in a unanimous decision to Germaine de Randamie at UFC 208 on Saturday. Holm, via her representatives, has appealed the result and asked the New York State Athletic Commission to overturn the outcome that referee Todd Anderson decided upon, MMA Fighting confirmed.
The NYSAC had a spokesperson tell ESPN.com that it had not yet received the request, although Holm’s representatives said it was filed both electronically and by U.S. mail on Wednesday.
Anderson wasn’t able to separate Holm and de Randamie in a timely manner after the horn went off at the end of the main event’s second and third rounds, which resulted in late punches on Holm that seemed to affect her for the remainder of the bout.

“We respectfully request the commission review referee Anderson’s failure to assess a foul and render a decision regarding a point deduction following Round 2, and failure to assess a foul and a point deduction following Round 3, and determine an appropriate result,” the complaint stated.
Holm lost her third fight in a row at UFC 208.
