Holm: ‘Cyborg Really Wants To Get To 135’

September 8, 2015 9:20 pm by BJPENN.COM News


UFC bantamweight champion, Holly Holm, is gearing up to fight champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 14.

Just recently Holm filmed a film, ‘Fight Valley,’ with fellow UFC bantamweight Meisha Tate and Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane ‘Cyborg.’

During the filming, Holm says that Cyborg asked her about making 135 lbs.

Here’s what she told MMAFighting about Cyborg’s curiosity:

“She goes, ‘Hey, you’re my height. How tall are you?’ I said, ‘I’m 5’8.’ She goes, ‘I’m 5’8. There’s hope. I’m gonna get there.’ That was pretty much it.”

“She was kind of asking me about my weight, because we’re about the same height. She really does want to go to 135. She wants to be able to do that.”
