Video: Holly Holm Mountain Dew commercial — ‘You have to put yourself out there’

New, 16 comments

It’s no Fight Valley, but it’ll Dew.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion, Holly Holm, knows a thing or two about putting herself out there, having competed against (and beaten) some of the best female fighters of all time.

So I’m sure for “The Preacher’s Daughter,” filming a commercial for carbonated antifreeze must have been a walk in the park. Holm can be seen at the beginning and end of the “Let’s Do” video, embedded above.

“This (commercial represents) how I feel. I like to get out and do it,” Holm told Uproxx Sports. “You have to put yourself out there. Some people don’t have the nerve to try. They want to have a comfortable lifestyle and mindset. When you put yourself in front of big things, it can be a big letdown. It’s a scary moment to be in.”

You know what else is scary? DRINKING MOUNTAIN DEW!

I’m sure Holm isn’t sucking down any nasty soda in fight camp, as the former boxing icon, now 37, takes on undefeated 23 year-old prospect Aspen Ladd at the UFC 235 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for March 2, 2019 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
