After losing three fights in a row, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm bounced back with a win this weekend in the main event of the UFC Fight Night at the Singapore Indoor Arena in Kallang, Singapore.
While Holm did not discuss what she thought would be next for her during her post-fight interview, her manager, Lenny Fresquez, told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani that Holm planned to wait for her “Rightful” title shot in either the bantamweight or featherweight division.
UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Correia had only a few fights finish by stoppage and t were only a handful of fighters who qualified for a Performance of the Night bonus.
The next event is UFC Fight Night: Chiesa vs. Lee, which takes place at the Chesapeake Energy Center in Oklahoma City next Sunday, June 25, and is headlined by a lightweight fight between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee.
Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting says that the UFC is close to announcing in the coming days that Cyborg will face Invicta featherweight champion Megan Anderson for the women’s featherweight title at the event, which takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim on July 29.
“I think it’s going to be the biggest fight ever, in the history of fights,” UFC president Dana White told TSN. White also told TSN that he felt the fight would break the North American pay-per-view record.
