UFC fighter Holm beats rival Ronda Rousey in 'Crush List' - an Ask Men magazine poll to determine who the men folk desire the most
Holly Holm's victory over Ronda Rousey in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight category earlier in the year propelled her into stardom apart from causing Rousey to contemplate suicide.

The American mixed martial artist recently left Rousey behind in the top-five list of a poll conducted by Ask Men magazine. Every year, the lifestyle magazine puts together their annual "Crush List," where they rate the top 99 women men have a crush on. While Rousey finds herself in 11th position, Holm sits pretty at No 5 in a list that Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley tops.
American singer and actress Beyonce is second, US model Ashley Graham finds herself at No 3 while Indian actress Priyanka Chopra is No 4. Current champion Miesha Tate and fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano made the cut as well.
"I don't have to tell you how Holm rocked everyone's world in 2015 but in case you forgot, 'The Preacher's Daughter' became the first woman to beat Rousey after stopping 'Rowdy' with a vicious head-kick knockout at UFC 193," a correspondent wrote on news.com.au.
Other athletes in the list are: American CrossFit competitor Jackie Perez (19), Canadian pro hockey player Hilary Knight (56), World No 1 tennis player Serena Williams (68), Canadian pro football player Lauren Sesselman (69), Serbian
tennis beauty Ana Ivanovic (84), Canadian pro volleyball player Taylor Pischke (86), American pro football player Sydney LeRoux (89) and Australia Olympic sprinter Michelle Jenneke (97).
