Holly Holm – Ronda Rousey II Not Next For New Bantamweight Champ

In recent days it looked as though the UFC might be open to the possibility of having Holly Holm fight someone else than Ronda Rousey next, and now Dana White has confirmed that’s the case.

Holm’s camp has been hoping to book another fight for the new bantamweight champ, rather than have her wait until Ronda Rousey returns in the summer. Since Holm took out Rousey at UFC 193, UFC officials have said they wanted to book an immediate rematch for UFC 200 in July. Holm’s management, however, evidently didn’t stop campaigning for a bout in the interim.

Recently White relayed to the LA Times that he wasn’t sure what the UFC was going to do with Holm, and on the latest edition of “UFC Tonight“, he said this (quote via FOX Sports):

“Holly Holm will fight before she fights Ronda again.”

So there you have it. The UFC President reportedly did not say who, when or where Holm’s next fight will be.
