This isn’t exactly severe trash talking but still noteworthy. Holly Holm, still fresh off her beat down of Ronda Rousey, hasn’t really done much talking about things between the two fighters. She has been pretty quiet so the fact she said she would beat her ten times of course drew attention. Realistically though, what is she supposed to say?


In the world of sports and even more so specifically in boxing of MMA, you never are going to admit someone might be a better fighter than you. That would sound weak, even if you were just trying to show respect.

So in a recent interview with the New York Times, the question came up of Holm fighting Rousey ten times and you already know what she said.

“Ten,” she said. “Because if I tell myself that there is one that I might not get, then I’ll be vulnerable.”

It’s crazy how things can change so fast. Last month Holm was looked at as just more lunch meat for Rousey to quickly feast on in the ring. Now we are talking about the prospect of Holm beating her over and over.
