Undefeated UFC bantamweight fighter Holly Holm is set to take part in the biggest fight of her career on one of the biggest fight night’s in UFC history. If the promotion achieves what they’re going for, it will break the UFC’s record for attendance.

That’s right, Holm is set to fight for the UFC title, against fellow undefeated fighter Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 on Nov. 14 in Melbourne, Australia.

Ahead of that fight if you were going to give Holm the advantage anywhere it would probably be on the feet, striking. After all, she is like a 17 or 19 time world boxing champion right? Well according to former UFC fighter and current analyst, Chael Sonnen, via The MMA Hour,  Holm isn’t even that great at punching.

Check it out!

“Again, she’s got some skills. You’ll hear the expression ‘a puncher’s chance,’ but she’s not very good at punching. Those boxing championships, they’re not real. I’m not sure she could outstrike Ronda. She definitely can’t outgrapple her. I wish her the best.”
