Holm said, via her attorneys Paul Bardacke and Breanna Houghton, that she is asking the New York State Athletic Commission to review Anderson's "failure to deduct one or more points from Germaine de Randamie following her repeated strikes thrown after the horn sounded to end Rounds 2 and 3".
Germaine de Randamie defeated Holly Holm by unanimous decision to capture the belt, but Cris "Cyborg" Justino remains the top ranked 145-pound female on the planet. If the UFC were hoping for an ideal rollout of the Cyborg-friendly featherweight division, this can't be the jumble they were counting on.
The fighter has officially filed a complaint against referee Todd Anderson and appealed the controversial unanimous decision in the UFC's inaugural women's featherweight title on February 11 in Brooklyn, MMAFighting.com confirmed Wednesday.
"I have nothing but respect for Holly and the UFC".
"I feel like I'm an MMA a fighter, and she's just a striker", Justino said.

He is quitting over the big losses related to the acquisition of CB&I Stone & Webster by its US nuclear unit, Westinghouse. Toshiba , founded in 1875, employs about 190,000 people and used to be one of the most respected brands of Japan Inc.
Holm's agent, Lenny Fresquez, weighed into the controversy by saying: "It was blatant". "I mean, some of her best shots of the whole night were after the bell".
Justino (16-1) is enthused by positive indications that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency will veer from suspending her over a December positive test for a banned diuretic; the fighter says it was prescribed for fertility and other issues.
Because she was unable to take the fight on the proposed date, Cyborg says it wasn't hard to sit and watch de Randamie and Holm battle for the title but clearly she knows that a championship belt doesn't necessarily make you the best fighter in the world. "But I still think I could have won the fight on my own". I have always trained to fight to the end or until the referee steps in. "Holly let's do this again", she added.
Her last win, a crushing, second-round (disappearing) knockout that sent Ronda Rousey to the sidelines for over a year, was the highlight of her Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) career.
