Holly Holm’s Manager Wanted One More Fight Before Ronda Rousey Title Shot

A fight between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm has seemed inevitable since the former boxing champion joined the UFC last year, but it’s perhaps come a little sooner than ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’s’ camp would have ideally hoped for.
