Holm: Rousey is beatable


Undefeated Holly Holm is the UFC's most recent signee at 135 lbs. and of like anyone new the division, the question is always can she challenge champion Ronda Rousey.

Holm recently spoke to MMAJunkie about when she expects to debut in the UFC and what she thinks about a potential showdown with Ronda Rousey:

“Ronda’s obviously the one to beat. Is she doing great? Absolutely. She’s really been cleaning up. She’s got a lot of skill and she’s a big threat,” Holm said. “But everyone’s also beatable. If I didn’t want that fight, why would I be in this sport? If you don’t want to make it to the top, you shouldn’t be doing this. Absolutely that would be a fight I’d want to look into.”

I guess if you are an mma fighter. green or struggling or with tons of native talent, you've signed a dotted line allowing yourself to be open to all comers.  Those cans who went down under Holly Holmes, i suppose they serve the universe  a purpose by making the real talent - giving us something to talk about, and making a high-powered crossover fighter better and ready for the big time.  We as fans benefit hugely, than if she stepped in to quick and at too high a level and had a loss to stain her record and stall her rise. Thanks for your post, i always had two minds about her record, but yes, no mercy or maudlin concern for the paper cups - a fighter is a fighter, if a scrub takes up a match, they wanted to do it.

Right! We were thinking that a nip slip would be far more likely than Ronda getting subbed.She EASILY shook her off.

Thoughts that come to mind - battle of the blonds. Holly has a 1 inch height advantage over Honda.Holly looks athletic and tall, unlike most of the girls out there.Holly trains out of a solid camp.Holly strings together punches and kicks well. We haven't seen Honda doing much kicking in fights or training, and we haven't seen Honda getting kicked.

She seems like an extremely humble and classy lady. I'm excited to see how she does in the UFC!

Carmouche did not have Rousey in deep trouble. Ronda did not care at all that Carmouche had her back. She just fixed her bra and shirt and then shook Liz off, no problem. Not a bit of worry.

I know it was a while ago, but Carmouche had her in some deep trouble. She seems to get hit often when trading punches but don't see anyone from the current crop that can punish her for that. Cyborg maybe.
