UFC bantamweight Holly Holm will fight Wednesday at UFC Fight Night: Mir vs. Duffee, when she takes on Marion Reneau.
Holm is also a teammate of former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. While doing press for her upcoming fight, she talked to FOX Sports about Jones:
“I think Jon’s always been a really supportive teammate. He’s really put himself available since then. He’s always been helpful. We don’t train at the exact same hour. They finish right when we start and a lot of times he’ll stay and watch the lightweights and he’s said before ‘this is the pay-per-view right here, I just watch this.’ It doesn’t matter who it is, he’ll go up and say, ‘hey you should try this, I think this will work for your style.’ Jon’s always a personable person and he’s always pretty positive and he’s got a great heart on him. Any time anybody gets to know him they really want the best for him. He has helped out a lot with my camp. I’ve been very positive. We’re all positive about it. We all want great things for him.”
