Pennington Hoping For Holm In 2015

Raquel Pennington wins - 181

“I told the UFC how we’d probably sell out the building from me being from Colorado and her being from New Mexico. It’s not that far of a drive. That was in the works, but I went into a 45-day suspension. But we’re talking probably a couple months into the New Year, so we’ll see.”

“She has a huge hype train behind her, and I don’t think that she’s really fought anybody. I’m not taking away from the opponents that she’s fought, but I don’t think she’s fought anybody with the credentials that a lot of us women have in the UFC.

“I do look forward to fighting her; I want to fight her. It was a little bit disappointing when it pushed, but at the end of the day, I ended up getting a fight with a good opponent, and I had fun.”

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie.com, Raquel Pennington expressed her desire to fight Holly Holm in the New Year.

The two were originally scheduled to fight at UFC 181, but an injury forced Holm out of her UFC debut.
