Holly Holm, the woman many consider the best female boxer America has ever produced, is suddenly the hottest prospect in women's MMA. The 32-year-old Holm, who retired from boxing in 2011 after compiling a 32-2-3 is now 5-0 in MMA and trains with Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn in her native Albuquerque, N.M.
She notched her most recent win at Legacy FC 24 on October 11 with a KO of Nikki Knudsen.
"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."
