Coach: Holm vs. Cyborg possible on PPV

 

Holly Holm's management recently met with the UFC, but they could not come to terms. Winklejon reported that the offer to Hplm was 15/15. The UFC has likewise been unable to successfully negotiate with Cris 'Cyborg' Justino.

So Holm's trainer for the past 16 years, Mike Winkeljohn floated the idea of Holm fighting Justino on PPV.

 Ariel Helwani has the story for MMAFighting.

"We have no problem with fighting for the money they've offered us for the first couple of fights in the UFC," said Winklejohn. "We just want good money to fight Ronda or whoever has the title at that point."

Winkeljohn said he expects Holm's manager to engage in talks with the UFC after Friday night's fight with "a different spin."

"I think they don't want to hurt the other girls' feelings and let the world know that money has been negotiated in such a way," Winkeljohn said. "I don't blame them. They are who they are because they make all the right decisions. There are other things we can ask for. She's got such good marketability, I think she would be a good broadcaster. Hey, can you help us get to FOX to be a broadcaster? Can you help us do these things?

"There are other things we can do to make money. There are other sources for her other than a dumb little paycheck. So we might have to look at it that way."

A source close to Cyborg's camp, for whatever it's worth, denied any talks of a pay-per-view fight against Holm.

Julianna Werner, as most of Holly's opponents, is a flyweight. Holm's been fighting undersized women, and she has yet to face a top 20 bantamweight.Yet, it took her 5 rounds to defeat Julianna Werner (who's just a a lot smaller than she and a far less experienced striker). No one ever took Cyborg to the 5th round in MMA.Cyborg is a lot bigger, stronger, well rounded and more experienced than anyone Holm ever faced.And just compare her fight with Jan Finney vs Cyborg's. In fact, under MMA rules, Cyborg wins this fight even standing.Holm doesn't stand chance, IMO. I think she's just trying to market herself into the UFC.

Poor cyborg..... Her non-head movement is going be easy pickings for holm in the stand up department, I think we'll see cyborg attempt a take down in the first minute for the first time ever.

At 135 lbs Holm-Cyborg is a toss up. If she's smart, they do that fight in the UFC and the winner get's Rousey.

Cyborg will get boxed to death but you are right, she may get the takedown and go heshe-hulk all over her. I hope that Cy is off the roids and will show a little technique this time ... But I doubt it...I don't think she can fight without roids.

Lol. Holm can't even tko her cans with regularity. In mma, Cyborg will ground and pound her into oblivion.

I'd order that PPV, would love to see them too fight but would rather see it next summer so Cyborg has 1-2 fights at 135 and Holm finishes out her current contract and gets more time to work on her ground game.
