UFC Quick Quote: Holly Holm vs. Ronda Rousey is a fight that must come to fruition

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

It's the classic match-up of striker vs. grappler between two of the best at what they do. But is it too early to start fantasizing about a potential "super fight" between Holly Holm and UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey?

"The goal is to make her the best MMA fighter in the world. I know [trainer] Mike [Winkeljohn] and Holly won't say it, but our goal is Ronda Rousey. That's what I'm looking for. My job is to make that come to fruition. I'll put it like this: Would Ronda want to get into the ring with Holly in a boxing match? I don't think so. Same thing, Holly needs to learn her ground game a little bit better. In the stand-up game, I don't think there's a comparison."

After wrapping up a stellar boxing career, one that included a 33-2-3 record, Holly Holm has officially retired from the "sweet science" to pursue mixed martial arts (MMA) full time. She previously dabbled in the sport of cage fighting and went 3-0 with all three wins coming by way of knockout or technical knockout and her promoter/manager, Lenny Fresquez, tells Sherdog.com that it's his job to make sure the former pugilist ends up standing across the Octagon from UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey. Or will that be Cat Zingano? The future is uncertain for "Rowdy" (see why here), just as it is for "The Preacher's Daughter," but since this is MMA, we will play fantasy matchmaker anyway. Besides, who wouldn't want to see one of the world's best female strikers take on one of the world's best female grapplers? Move over, "Cyborg," there's a new women's "super fight" on the horizon...
