Holly Holm has declined an offer to fight at UFC Singapore

A week ago we reported that former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm (10-3 MM) had been offered a bout with undefeated Korean fighter Ji Yeon Kim (6-0-2 MMA) for ‘UFC Fight Night 111’ which takes place June 17 in Singapore.

Unfortunately for fight fans hoping to see Holm compete in Singapore, “The Preacher’s Daughter” has opted against taking a fight with the Korean prospect, as BJPENN.com’s own Chris Taylor confirmed with Kim’s manager just moments ago.

With that said, Ji Yeon Kim is still hopeful to make her octagon debut at the June 17 event.

Ji Yeon Kim was last seen in action this past November where she scored a second-round submission victory (rear-naked choke) over Tao Li at the “Top FC 13” event in Seoul, South Korea.

Kim has scored an impressive four finishes in her six career mixed martial arts wins, earning three submissions and one TKO victory in that time.

As for Holly Holm, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion was last seen in action at February’s UFC 208 event in Brooklyn, where she took on Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural women’s featherweight championship.

Unfortunately for fans of “The Preacher’s Daughter”, Holly was outpointed by “GDR” and lost the main event contest via unanimous decision.

After starting her mixed martial arts career a perfect 10-0, capturing the UFC’s women’s bantamweight title in the process, Holly has now dropped three-straight fights and is in desperate need of a win.

Holm lost her UFC women’s bantamweight championship to Miesha Tate at UFC 196 in March of 2016 via fifth-round submission. Following her title fight loss to Tate, Holm was matched up with rising star Valentina Shevchenko, who defeated Holly via unanimous decision.

With the Kim fight now off the table, who would you like to see Holly Holm fight in her next octagon appearance? Sound off PENN Nation!
