The path to gold is usually never short. Whether you are chasing a championship in the Ultimate Fighting Championship or Bellator, the amount of work you put in behind the scenes shadows what fans actually get to see. After just two octagon appearances, Holly Holm is set to challenge Ronda Rousey for her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship at UFC 195 in January.
Some feel Holm’s performances inside the octagon didn’t warrant a title shot over the likes of Amanda Nunes and Miesha Tate, but the fact remains that she is the next challenger for “Rowdy”.
A certain UFC lightweight decided to speak out about the depth of the ladies’ division, and was called out on it by Angela Magana!
Wow I can't even imagine my ufc division being so weak that after only 2 wins you get a title fight. I'm 4-0 in the ufc and ranked like 38.

James Vick’s actions speak for themselves; His victories inside the octagon have been very impressive and he will no doubt be a more popular fighter when the UFC gives him more opportunities. If he weren’t in such a stacked division, he could already be on the path to gold. Magana tried her hardest to put him in his place, but did she succeed?
