is one specific name of interest that is missing from Amanda Nunes’s growing résumé
of casualties, and Holly Holm enjoys to inform you who it is.

At UFC 239, Amanda Nunes will look to continue increasing her status as the agreement biggest female martial artist of perpetuity, a credibility made primarily due to the names that have actually has beat: Cris Cyborg, Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Valentina Shevchenko two times, to name a few, with each of those fighters having actually used UFC gold in the past. There is another lady who has actually been a UFC champ who is missing on that list and who brings a totally different difficulty to Amanda Nunes:


“In order to have two belts in two different divisions, you have to be a special something,” Holm informed MMA Junkie at Monday’s UFC 239 media day in downtown LA. “But she hasn’t dealt with Holly which’s the bottom line.

” This
is an entire different battle,” Holm continued. “Is she terrific? Yes. Am I up
versus an excellent fighter? Yeah. It would not be a huge expectant title battle, she
would not be where she’s at if she had not done terrific things, so yes, it’s a really
huge battle however I’m all set for it I’ve been training my butt off which’s what
I’m doing. I’m working for a win.”

Some may argue that due to the fact that Cyborg beat Holm and Nunes beat Cyborg, the chances are strong that Nunes will beat Holm. Holly Holm counters such MMA mathematics with a “styles make fights” kind of argumentation, conjuring up the name of another technical striker, Valentina Shevchenko, as an example.

” When
you go out for a slugfest, any person who lands that is going to decrease,” Holm
stated. “Every battle makes a distinction, the Cyborg and my battle is different
than the battle in between Amanda and Cyborg. You can take a look at things in a great deal of
different methods. You can take a look at something like Shevchenko and Nunes where
Shevchenko provided her a tough time where she was so technical.”
