Holly Holm has caught the public eye by destroying all of her opponents in 5 professional fights
Former boxing champ Holly Holm is certainly making waves in the WMMA world. She has racked up 5 stoppage wins since announcing her transition to MMA earlier this year. Holm’s string of impressive performances has caught the attention of the public, including UFC president Dana White.
“I was on the street the other day, and some guy was like, ‘Hey! Sign Holly Holm!'” says White. “I was like, ‘Yeah, I know. Everybody’s telling me.”
White, who admits that he has not seen a single fight of Holm, says that the former boxer reminds him of Connor McGregor.
“I haven’t seen her fight, but I keep hearing about her. She’s like the female Conor McGregor.”
McGregor, prior to his UFC career has been fighting in regional scenes in Europe. His name has been constantly brought up by his fans in Dana White’s Twitter account. White eventually signs the fast talking Irishman who has now compiled two wins, including a knockout of the night performance in his UFC debut last April.
Holm, on the other hand has been one of the most talked about new comer to the sport, thanks to her extensive career in pro boxing. That being said, a lot of MMA fans have not seen her matches except from youtube videos.
Up to now, the UFC president claims that he has not discussed the potential signing of Holm with UFC matchmakers Sean Shelby and Joe Silva. White pointed out that the two matchmakers are the ones that are responsible with matters concerning the signing of new rosters.
“They know who’s next,” White said. “When it’s time for Holly Holm, they’ll let me know.”
