Ronda Rousey Could Be Receiving A Challenge From Holly Holm

She might not have the name recognition of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate or Sarah Kaufman, but Holly Holm is coming for that top spot.

Holm, considered by many to be the best female boxer in the world, picked up a win in her Bellator debut last week, finishing Katie Merrill in the first round.

The win improved her MMA record to 3-0, with all three victories coming by way of finish. And, while her promoter knows she needs more experience inside the cage, a fight with Rousey is on the mind of Team Holm.

“Holly looked great,” her promoter Lenny Fresquez (Fresquez Productions) said. “We believe that, after a few more MMA fights, within a year she’ll be ready to take on Rousey. Holly’s problem in MMA, as in boxing, is that her list of competitive opponents is very short.”

Holm trains at Team Jackson/Winkeljohn in New Mexico. The 31-year-old is an 18-time world champion in three boxing weight divisions, going 32-2-3 in her career.
