Holly Holm’s life could be much different after this weekend if she can dethrone the UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Holm has the chance to take out one of the sport’s most dominant athletes to ever grace the Octagon.
As Holm readies to fight in front of the UFC’s potentially largest crowd in attendance history, Holm has found some comfort and motivation in a teammate that has already been in the spotlight as UFC world champion.
“I just got a text from Jon Jones,” Holm told Submission Radio. “Just a motivational one. Bible scripture. Just kind of just keeping it down to earth and keeping it real, and just, you know, some of the teammates just saying ‘you’re gonna do this.’ ”
Do you think Holm will be able to overcome the dominant champion? Let us know if you think Holm training with the former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be a deciding factor in her title fight this weekend!
