Dana White Says Rousey-Holm Rematch Will Happen
UFC president Dana White said this week that the promotion intends to book an immediate rematch between former female champ Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm.
During an appearance on Mike & Mike on Thursday (Dec. 3), White said the rematch is still the plan for the UFC, though he did not specify a date.
"I think that if we didn't make the rematch, me and [UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta] should probably lose our promoter's license," White said. "That's the fight that's going to happen. That's the fight.
"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 she deserves a rematch. We'll figure it out."
Holm (10-0) shocked the world in November, when she upset Rousey (12-1) via knockout with a left head kick.
