Holly Holm speaks up for Ronda Rousey’s achievements after shock knock-out

Tom Victor

Holly Holm has every right to take further aim at Ronda Rousey after her victory at UFC 193.

‘Rowdy’ went big on the pre-fight trash-talk before the pair met in Melbourne, only for Holm to shock the world of mixed martial arts with a crushing victory.

But the American has remained humble in victory and called on people to go easy on Rousey.


“Ronda’s been a very dominant champ and taken the sport to new levels, and this fight couldn’t have happened if she hasn’t accomplished what she’s accomplished,” Holm told TMZ Sports.

“I have a lot of respect for her. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to give away any bit of my victory, so I’ll take it…but that doesn’t mean that I wish any harm on her and it doesn’t mean that I wish any hate on her.”
