Holm: ‘Ronda Losing Good For Woman’s MMA’


“I think it (WMMA) would benefit greatly. I think when you see one person do well or kind of bring down the No. 1, then everybody thinks, well if she can do that, I can, too. Ronda has run through everybody in the division. So I think it’s kind of hard when people get in there and stare across the ring and think, Wow, can I really beat her? And you really have to believe you can or else you’re not going to be able to do it. She’s going to be hard to beat. There’s no bones about it. But you also can’t put her on a pedestal so high that you don’t believe you can do well also.”

In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, UFC bantamweight contender Holly Hold talks Ronda Rousey.

Holm faces Raquel Pennington in the co-main event of UFC 184, under Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano.
