Former UFC bantamweight women champion Holly Holm (12-5) is clearly not interested in hanging the gloves for good. The 37-years-old suffered her 5th UFC loss last Saturday when two-weight champion Amanda Nunes TKO’d her in the first round.
UFC President Dana White said in the post-fight press conference that he’d like to see “The Preacher’s Daughter” retire, but yesterday Holm released a statement that she’ll be continuing her MMA career.
“I always say I get to live the life of a dream. I never actually dreamed of getting kicked in the face, that’s never part of my dream,” Holm said.
“That’s like on the nightmare part, living a little nightmare, wake up every morning like, ‘Yup, that’s real, that just happened.’
“But I just want you guys to know I’m feeling good and I know one thing: I’m still pushing forward.”
“A lot of heartbreak right now, but I’m doing fine, I just want you guys to know I appreciate the love and support,” Holm said. “And if you would like to have free lip filler, just get kicked in the face.”
