Holm wouldn’t back down from Cyborg superfight

When Holly Holm defeated Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, many fans hopes for a potential Rousey vs. Cyborg superfight went right out the window.

However, with how impressive of a performance Holm put on at UFC 193, many fans began talking about a potential Holm vs. Cyborg superfight.

The way Mike Winkeljohn tells it, Holm would fight Cyborg in a heartbeat.

He spoke to TalkingBrawlsMMA.com:

“I’ll tell you what: Holly has never turned down a fight before in her life. It won’t be on Holly’s terms if she turns down a fight, unless she retires. Holly will fight anybody, anywhere. She’s that tough, mentally. She believes in herself and what she can do.”

“Cris ‘Cyborg’ is just incredible with her strength and with what she can so. I don’t know if she can make the weight at 135 pounds yet. She’s got a lot of holes in her game, a lot of craziness. That girl is so strong, so we’d have to be worried about it. But Holly would fight her in a heartbeat.”

Cyborg is currently in the process of cutting weight for a catchweight fight under the Invicta FC banner at 140 pounds.

Should she be able to make 140 pounds, do you think we would see her fight Holm at 135?
