Holly Holm recently added another feather to her cap.

The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, who also held multiple world titles in boxing, was inducted into the New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame in a ceremony held inside Albuquerque Convention Center on Sunday night.

“Tonight I was inducted into the New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame,” Holm wrote on Instagram. “I am honored and humbled. I truly appreciate everyone who has supported me in my journey thus far. My family, friends, coaches, manager, teammates and of course all of my fans. Thank you for believing in me in this journey and taking this ride with me. I am only more motivated to keep pushing to succeed and strive for greatness.”

Holm, 39, was inducted alongside pugilist Danny Romero, among others.

It’s been something of a roller coaster ride for “The Preacher’s Daughter,” who remains ranked among the top fighters in two separate weight classes. The hot-and-cold Holm has yet to reclaim the strap she once wore back in late 2015.

Holm returns to the Octagon on Oct. 16 to face Norma Durant.
