Rousey And Holms Rematch Confirmed! Holly Holms Opens Up About Fighting Ronda Rousey Again

Get ready UFC fans, because Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm intend to face off in the ring once more. While Rousey, 28, has been keeping a low profile since her UFC 193 defeat last month against Holm, 34, UFC president Dana White confirmed a rematch is being scheduled between the two champs.

“I think that if we didn’t make the rematch, me and Lorenzo [Fertitta, UFC CEO] should probably lose our promoter’s license,” said UFC president Dana White in an interview with ESPN Radio on Thursday. “That’s the fight that’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but that’s the fight.”

White went on to confirm that the rematch “is a WHEN not an IF,” adding, “Ronda Rousey has gone undefeated; she’s taken the sport to another level and beaten the best women in the world in 14 seconds, 30 seconds. She deserves a rematch. Holly agrees that she deserves a rematch. We’ll figure it out.”

Despite both fighters confirming they want the rematch to take place, Rousey herself has yet to publicly address whether or not she’s willing to face her rival once more. Sources share that, in the first few days following her big loss, the formerly undefeated fighter was depressed, and, at the time, was not making any decisions yet about a possible rematch.

However, seeing as he is the one who has spoken with her, White believes Rousey will push through with the rematch. A UFC spokesperson confirmed to ESPN that White met with Rousey late last month for a meeting that had been scheduled before her UFC 193 defeat.

“Dana did say that there would be a rematch,” said the spokesperson to E! News. “No potential dates have been discussed at this point.”

Of the possible rematch, Holm stated, “I’ll have to train twice as hard. She’ll be coming back hard. She’s a competitive person, and we all know that, so she’ll be coming back hard.”
