Holm: It was my decision


Her mistake, Albuquerque MMA fighter and former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm said Monday, was not that she took the Miesha Tate fight. The mistake was not winning it.

“That was me. That was my decision,” Holm said on’s “The MMA Hour,” refuting a suggestion by UFC President Dana White that Holm’s management team had misled her about the possible consequences of a loss to Tate.

Regarding the future, Holm said she’d be eager to fight either Tate or Ronda Rousey  — but would prefer a chance to avenge the loss to Tate.
