Holly Holm Now Faces Nikki Knudsen At Legacy FC 24 Due To Injury

Former boxing champion Holly Holm will have to do some late adjusting for Legacy FC 24, as her opponent Erica Paes is out with an undisclosed injury. Bantamweight Nikki Knudsen will fill the void left by Paes.

Holm went 33-2-3 during her boxing career before switching to MMA full-time this year. She’s 4-0 and stopped each win. The most recent victory was to Allanna Jones in her Legacy FC debut.

Following a three year hiatus, Knudsen returned by submitting Windy Thorn for Alaska Fighting Championship a few months back.

Legacy FC 24 is October 11 from the Allen Event Center in Texas. The main card airs live on AXS TV.
