Former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm is less than two weeks from the fight of her life. And taking to her usual routine, the UFC star is posting videos of her training regiment ahead of her UFC 219 main event. Now, in a new video, Holm is garnering way more than her average viewership, as a training video is approaching viral status with a half a million views.
Holly Holm became a household name when she knocked out UFC mega-star Ronda Rousey in the second round of their UFC 193 main event.
Holm would then go on to drop her next three fights, ending a longtime unbeaten streak as an MMA fighter.
She would follow up that Ronda Rousey KO, with the loss of her world title to a Miesha Tate submission at UFC 196. Holm would then lose decisions to both Valentina Shevchenko and Germaine de Randamie, respectively.
It wouldn’t be until this past June in Singapore, when she would end her losing streak with another knockout win, this time against former UFC title challenger Bethe Correia.
Holm will look to continue her run through the UFC, and become a two-division world champion in the process, in her upcoming UFC 219 main event against UFC featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg.
Holm will move up in weight, for a chance to repeat history by taking out another icon in the sport. And while the task is tough, likely the toughest of her storied prize fighting career, Cyborg’s style plays into Holly Holm’s strengths pretty well.
Many analysts and pundits agree that not only is this the toughest test for the former UFC champion, but it’s also Cyborg’s toughest test to date. Without question she’s the Brazilians most notable opponent.
In MMA anything can happen, and that’s why there’s so much intrigue surrounding this all-female mega-fight.
UFC 219 takes place on December 30, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The night’s main card will air live on pay-per-view, and features a co-main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Edson Barboza.
Now, Holly Holm is approaching viral status with a new workout video, and it’s interesting to see why.
