Holly Holm MMA Workout and Training

World boxing champion Holly Holm just signed a multi-fight deal with the UFC after months of hype, speculation, and negotiations. She’s only 31 years old, but she has multiple boxing titles and holds an undefeated MMA record since transitioning to the sport full-time only last year.

Sports media outlets are already presenting Holly Holm as stiff competition for bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who dominates the 135-pound women’s division.
