The fact that Holly Holm’s first title defense is going down this Saturday has gotten lost somewhat in the Conor McGregor mix, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an extremely compelling fight.
Holm will be fighting for the first time since she flipped the MMA world upside down last November, when she took out Ronda Rousey. Now she’ll look to defend the bantamweight title against Rousey’s long time rival, Miesha Tate.
Can Holm defend the belt and advance to a rematch with Rousey? Can Tate win the title and advance to a third fight with her rival?
