Holly Holm is undefeated in professional mixed martial arts and has an extensive combat sports background. Her manager recently met with UFC executives and believe they are moving in the right direction in bringing her to the UFC and towards an eventual showdown with champion Ronda Rousey:
“This is a superfight,” he said. “This is the biggest women’s fight in the history of any type of women’s [combat] sports. It’s a lot of money involved in this payday. I just want to make sure Holly gets her share.”
Fresquez said he met Saturday with UFC executives Lorenzo Fertitta, Dana White and Sean Shelby at Dallas’ American Airlines Center following this past Saturday’s UFC 171. Holm did not attend the meeting, he said, because direct negotiations are relatively young.
Although he described the meeting as “positive,” Fresquez said there are several deal points to hammer out before there is an agreement to bring Holm into the octagon.
“Offers went back and forth,” he said. “We already had guidelines of what we were going to agree on and what we weren’t going to agree on. We’re still a little ways (apart) and there’s still a couple of items. We’re very excited about getting Holly into the UFC. It’s just my job to put Holly in the right hands.”
