Holm on coming into the Bantamweight division: “It’s exciting. If you don’t want to beat the best, you shouldn’t really be in it. I just want to take one step at a time. I want to fight for the title. It’s one of my goals and dreams and I’m just going to keep shooting for it.”

Holm on recovering from her recent injury: “I’m almost 100 percent released from my doctor because of my arm. It’s coming along.”

Holm on improving her ground game: “I’ll never feel like my ground game is there. I need a lot of work. I still feel my jab needs improving.”

Holm on getting called out by numerous fighters: “It’s a lot of pressure. It’s exciting. I haven’t made it anywhere yet. I still have all the work ahead of me. But the fact that I have a target on my back, I like that. It motivates me and makes me want to train harder.”

Holm on how many fights away is she from Rousey: “I don’t know. I think I want it and I want it right away. Then I think, let’s take baby steps. I’ve never been one to choose a certain opponent. I’ll let the UFC pick. I want to take whatever is given to me and take one fight at a time.”
