From the moment Holly Holm defeated Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, she knew a rematch was inevitable. “I think a rematch – that’s just kind of unspoken, just common sense to me,” she said at the post-event press conference. She doesn’t seem all that bothered with having to kill the queen twice in a row, and that may be because she’s got the utmost confidence in herself and her skills. Here’s what she told The New York Times:
Q. If you were to fight her 10 times, how many would you win?
A. “Ten. Because if I tell myself that there is one that I might not get, then I’ll be vulnerable. I also know that I’m beatable, so I’m going to train twice as hard. She’s going to come back. She’s mad that it’s not her title anymore. I’ve got to be twice as ready as last time.”
