Holly Holm is back in action tomorrow night, as the former bantamweight champ will take on Valentina Shevchenko. Since the bout was announced, the consensus has been that it’s a tough fight for Holm, as Shevchenko is no joke, and has yet to become a household name. So, one could say Holm has much to lose, and little to gain in the bout.
It will be interesting to see how Holm performs, as it will mark the first time she’s fought since she was choked out by Miesha Tate in March (and lost the belt). Shevchenko, meanwhile, was decisioned by the new champ, Amanda Nunes, in her last scrap.
