Back in 2015, Holly Holm would shock the world by defeating then-champion Ronda Rousey. But since, life in the octagon has been very difficult for Holm. In fact, she has lost four of her last five fights. So, what’s next?
Well according to Holm herself, it’s not retirement.
“People ask me, ‘You had four out of five losses, four out of five fights are losses and youa��re 36 and are you going to return?’ And I was like, it’s, ‘I still want to fight, that’s the bottom line.’”
But she explains why.
“Why wouldn’t I want to return when I just gave her the toughest fight in (a) weight class that is a heavier weight class from where I usually fight against the biggest person? I was the one who gave her her toughest fight so I don’t really understand the retirement, you know, people think should you retire maybe it’s just because of the way that, you know how those four fights have gone.”
Who would you like to see Holm fight next? Moreover, should she retire?
