White: Holm like the 'female Conor McGregor'


Conor McGregor is one of Dana White's favorite featherweight prospects, a tough Irish kid who burst into the UFC with an impressive knockout and a brash attitude. Holly Holm is making news on the regional level and White sees the similarity between the two, specifically in regards to the hype he's heard surronding both:

"You're like the billionth person that's asked me about Holly Holm. I was on the street the other day and some guy was like, 'HEY! Sign Holly Holm.' And I'm like, 'yeah, I know. Everybody's telling me.' I haven't seen her fight but I keep hearing about her. She's like the female Conor McGregor. I thought Conor McGregor was a heavyweight when I was hearing about him. For some reason, that's what I did. Holly Holm, I don't know what she looks like, I've never seen her fight, but I know who she is."

Needless to say the former pro boxer is definetly on White's radar and it wouldn't be suprising to see her land in the UFC women's division sooner than later.

There is only one Connor Mcgregor...Hey wtf....this is not a topic about Conor at all. Misleading title wink winkAnyways the UFC need to sign her asap and give her the Roussey treatment (aka build up with kid gloves). Then we have an epic fight in a year or two...if Ronda has not retired for the movies business yet or has become a spokesperson for fighting discrimination against people with Unibrows.

Saw her fight on October 11th and she was easily the best fighter on the Legacy card that night. Felt sorry for that other girl.

She is easily one of the best athletes I have ever dealt with. No ego, very nice, professional and very, very good.

2 years away. Stay in Legacy and work on the ground game. She is being spoon fed right now.

I would like to see her fight for Invicta a few times while she's working on her grappling. I see the UFC title eventually going Rousey --> McMann --> Holm but a few years down the line yet.
