ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque MMA fighter Holly Holm has signed a four-fight contract with the Texas promotional firm Legacy Fighting Championship, Lenny Fresquez, Holm’s local promoter, said Wednesday.
Holm is scheduled to make her LFC debut July 19 in Houston.
Fresquez said the agreement with LFC will provide Holm the experience and exposure she needs to get to the top of mixed-martial arts in as brief a time as possible.
Holm, 31, recently announced her retirement from boxing after a highly successful, 11-year ring career, saying she wanted to focus exclusively on MMA. Thus far, she’s 3-0 as a cagefighter.
