Holm: I really look forward to fighting Rousey


Holly Holm is one of the women's MMA's fastest rising stars outside of the UFC. Her management has said she was already offered a UFC contract, but they turned it down. The former professional boxer is a perfect 5-0 and will likely end up in the UFC should she keep winning. She recently spoke to MMAJunkie about her career and potential show down with Ronda Rousey:

Holm in April fights for Legacy Fighting Championship’s inaugural women’s bantamweight tile. And while Legacy FC has established itself as one of the sport’s top regional promotions, Holm’s impressive MMA run – which features five knockout victories in six appearances – has fans and pundits alike wondering if she’s destined for more.

“I definitely feel like my MMA career is on a fast track, which I think is great,” Hold told USA TODAY Sports. “I figure if you’re not going to challenge yourself, then why be in here? If you don’t want to be the best, then why are you doing this?”

Ronda will get lit up if she tries to get brave and stand with Holly, Im sure shes been working her ground game and it will be much improved by the time she gets in the UFC. Might be a better matchup then most would think by the time Holm gets a UFC title shot.

I watched her fights and I wasn't all that impressed with her standup. Wins by head-kick ko for the "second coming" from a female champion boxer? And she was fighting much much lesser competition. I was expecting to see the female Shane Carwin from all the hype.Ronda takes it easily, hits the ground... it will be over.

When she faces anyone with striking defence and a good ground game, she's done.
