Undefeated Boxing Star Holly Holm Signs On With UFC
At 32 years old, weighing 135 pounds and carrying an undefeated 7-0 record in her MMA boxing career, Holly Holm has signed an exclusive deal with the UFC. She brings an amazing 33-2-3 record, winning titles from the WBF, WBAN, WBC, GBU, WIBA, IFBA, WBA and IBA, and plenty of hype with her.
“Holm enters the UFC with a lot of hype as one of the only names left on the roster still to challenge women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Given her prolific striking background, Holm creates a different kind of animal for Rousey to deal with if she can survive an early UFC schedule to earn the title shot,” Fox Sports reported. “Holm trains alongside a slew of top UFC names including light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, so she’ll have no shortage of great partners to get her ready for her Octagon debut once she is officially cleared to return to action.”
While Holm is still healing after a broken arm from a match in April, fans look forward to her long-awaited return to boxing in the UFC ring.
