Holly Holm WILL Fight Rousey Next Says Dana White

After meeting with UFC officials to discuss her next fight, Holly Holm’s manager Lenny Fresquez put the thought out their that women’s bantamweight champion might be interested in making her first title defense to Miesha Tate.

Fresquez showed concerns about Ronda Rousey’s availability, going as far to say he doubted she would be ready for the targeted bout at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas.

Fresquez also made it clear Holm wants to be back in the ring by February rather than wait for Rousey.

UFC President Dana White had this to say in response to the comments

“it’s Rousey” next for Holm. We’re real concerned with his opinion,” White said sarcastically.

He went on to say hes been talking to Rousey “seven times a day” since her loss, and continued to praise her, saying the following:

“Ronda is the fiercest competitor I have ever met in my life and she’s also very proud, What made the world love Ronda is that Ronda absolutely 100% knew she was not going to lose. People rallied around this powerful female figure. Ronda’s never lost a fight,She will overcome it and be back. She got clipped, stayed in there and tried to fight through it. She told me she was in there, she was rocked, and she’d never been rocked like that before. And the things that were going on in her head – what she was doing – she’d never been in that situation.”
