Holly Holm Turns Down Big Movie Role to Focus on UFC

Holly Holm

Despite falling in the UFC's women's ranking, following a loss to Miesha Tate, Holly Holm is still dedicated to fighting... and not movies.

According to TMZ, the 34-year-old was contacted to star in a major studio movie, but turned down the role... because film dates interfered with her training for an upcoming UFC on Fox fight in July.

Holm's rep, Lenny Fresquez, confirmed the rumors, saying: "She's focused on fighting. We don't want to make the same mistakes that somebody else made."

Holm is slated to headline UFC on Fox on July 23, when she takes on Valentina Shevchenko.

Fresquez says Holm recently hired the APA agency to handle the non-fight related side of her career, but says her main focus is inside the Octagon.
