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."

read entire article... 

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.

I don't think Holm will beat girls like McCann Tate or Rhonda but could go far. Phone Post

time traveling 12er - Sean Shelby is really the person everyone needs to be bugging.

not really, you think if Dana has interest he won't get them?

Also most people have no idea what shelby looks like, i don't think i do.

I remember reading quotes before from White about guys he wanted signed but didn't. For example he mentions getting Robbie Lawlor signed was a gift to himself, suggesting they don't usually just sign whoever White wants signed. I'm sure the president of the org being interested goes a very long way, but in the end it's Sean Shelby who makes the signings for the lighter fighters.

i agree but she seems to be making leaps and bounds on her mma game and her striking and footwork is by far the best ive seen in wmma so if she dedicates herself to working the ground game which im sure she is since shes at jacksons she definitely has huge potential

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.

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.

There is only one Connor Mcgregor...

Hey wtf....this is not a topic about Conor at all. Misleading title wink wink

Anyways 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.
