Holly Holm lost her UFC bantamweight championship to Miesha Tate in March. Then, she was offered a fight against featherweight champ Cris "Cyborg" Justino at a catch weight of 140 pounds at last week’s UFC 198.
In fact, Holm insisted that she still considers a fight against Justino as a future possibility. Furthermore, Holm isn’t daunted by fighting up in weight in order to make the bout happen.
After all, the former boxing champion fought much heavier than the 135-pound class in which she currently competes. "In boxing, I fought in three weight classes," she explained.
"I’m not gonna say that I’m against going at 140. I actually think Cyborg might be able to do 135. Who knows? But that’s definitely something that could be an option for the future. I’m actually really happy for her victory. I really like Cyborg. I think she’s a great gal."
If Justino doesn’t ever fight at bantamweight, consider Holm game for a catch weight. "I’m not even stuck on the 135 compared to the 140 stuff," she concluded.
