UFC 184: Holly Holm In No Rush To Fight Ronda Rousey

Holly Holm

For a UFC debut, women’s bantamweight prospect Holly Holm did a fantastic job of controlling her first fight inside the Octagon against TUF 18 finalist Raquel Pennington in the co-main event of UFC 184. Although, the former 18-time world boxing champion in three weight classes was hoping for a clean KO finish, she still managed to perform extremely well under lots of pressure and finished the job by split decision.

However, Holm isn’t 100% satisfied with her performance on Saturday night; she feels she needs a few more fights before going toe-to-toe with the 135-pound champ, Ronda Rousey, who humiliated Cat Zingano in 14-seconds by submission (straight armbar) in UFC 184‘s main event.

During the post-fight presser, Holm said:

Congratulations to Ronda, that was an impressive win. Really, as a champion, you really just don’t see that coming. Ronda, she’s very impressive. So I’d like to get my feet wet. I finally got this first UFC fight over with.

I didn’t really sit down on my punches like I wanted to tonight. There’s a lot of things that I want to do better, and I know I’m capable of more, so I’m not 100% satisfied with my performance. But I will take the things that I know I did well and take them with me and try to improve on all the others.

After defeating Pennington, Holm now holds eight straight wins in mixed martial arts. She will most likely have another fight in the UFC in the upcoming months.
