Holly Holm isn’t worried about gaining a few extra baby pounds to face the deadliest female fighter on the planet, Cris Cyborg. In a recent interview, Holm unveiled her thoughts on going up against Cyborg at 140-pounds in the near future.
I’m not even stuck on the 135 compared to the 140 stuff. It’s not really a big thing for me. In boxing, I fought in three weight classes, I’m not gonna say that I’m against going at 140. I actually think Cyborg might able to do 135. Who knows? But that’s definitely something that could be an option for the future. I’m actually really happy for her victory. I really like Cyborg. I think she’s a great gal.

Cyborg recently made her UFC debut last week against Leslie Smith at UFC 198. She destoyed her opponent early in the very first round by TKO (punches).
