Holly Holm Only Offered 15K To Join The UFC

Holly Holm only has one fight left on her contract with Legacy FC and is making plans to look into any other possible options. The IFC and WFC welterweight champion made the official move to full time MMA training last year and has created an impressive undefeated 7-0 record already. She was hopeful about talks to join the UFC. However, Holm’s coach Mike Winkeljohn told sources that the UFC’s initial bid was $15,000 to show up and $15,000 to win.

A European boxing promoter is currently offering her this hefty sum to return and fight multi-title holder, Cecelia Braekhus, according to Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard.

While Holm and her camp is still looking towards a fight against UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, obviously having this sort of offer will make a difference in future negotiations.
