With a boxing career that saw Holly Holm make some mega cash, she opted to end that part of her life to focus on MMA. Her longtime coach Mike Winkeljohn mentioned how she turned away six figure offers for a chance in the MMA world.
“She’s turned down a lot of money,” said Winkeljohn to MMA Junkie. “I’ll throw a figure out there: She turned down a quarter-million dollars because she had decided, hey, I want to do MMA.”
As a boxer, Holm fought for 11 years and was 33-2. As for MMA, she’s undefeated with four wins. Following a win out of Bellator, Holm inked a deal with Legacy FC. In her debut for them she finished Allanna Jones at Legacy FC 21 in July.
There is no return date for the bantamweight.
