Dana White Says Holly Holm Won’t Be Getting A Title Shot Right Away

The UFC just signed former world champion boxer and undefeated MMA fighter, Holly Holm but that doesn’t mean she will be getting a title shot right off the bat, she will still have to earn a shot at the title currently around the waist of Ronda Rousey according to UFC President, Dana White.

White told sources at the Los Angeles Times that the promotional newcomer would have to take at least one non-title bout before stepping in with the current women’s 135-pound champion. “Rowdy” is coming off a 16-second destruction of Alexis Davis at UFC 175 and informed the media in her post-fight interviews that she would be taking time to address issues with knee and hand injuries that she’s been dealing with throughout her past few training camps.
