On The MMA Hour, former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm dropped a bomb. She told listeners that if the UFC wants to make the featherweight title bout with current champ Cris Cyborg – she’s down. She was asked about the potential bout and if/when the contract would appear before her.
We’re waiting to see if it’s presented or not. It’s obviously something we are open to doing. We’ll see if it happens. I know she’s putting it out there that she’s calling me out, but that’s just social media and a lot of that I don’t get into. I am here to train and if the fight gets put together, I am going to be training to beat her. As far as that goes, I’m not saying no and saying that it has to be this day or that. If they present the contract, then let’s do it.
The fight has been discussed on forums and at the water coolers since Cyborg won the title. It only makes sense for the woman who dethroned Ronda Rousey to face the woman Rousey refused to face.
