ufc 182

According to “UFC Tonight,” former world boxing champion Holly Holm’s Octagon debut could come this year.

Holm, who signed with the promotion after earning seven wins in seven fights on the regional scene, is rumored for a bout with Milana Dudieva at UFC 181 in December. The card features a pair of world title fights, as Robbie Lawler challenges Johny Hendricks and Gilbert Melendez meets Anthony Pettis.

Holm (7-0) won boxing titles in multiple weight classes before deciding to focus solely on MMA. She stopped Juliana Werner in April to win the Legacy FC title, but suffered a broken arm in the win.

Dudieva (11-3) earned a win in her debut with the UFC this past August, scoring a split decision over Elizabeth Phillips. She is on a three-fight win streak.
