MMA: Holm has offer

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque MMA fighter Holly Holm has an offer to fight South Korea’s Ji Yeon Kim on a Jun 17 UFC card in Singapore, Holm’s manager confirmed on Tuesday.
Via text, Albuquerque’s Lenny Fresquez said the offer is being discussed by Holm and her team and has not yet been accepted.
This development does not mean, Fresquez said, that the possibility of a rematch with Dutch fighter Germaine de Randamie is off the table.
De Randamie defeated Holm by unanimous but disputed decision for the inaugural UFC women’s featherweight (145-pound) title on Feb. 11 in Brooklyn, N.Y. Twice, after the second and third rounds, de Randamie hit Holm after the horn had sounded to signify the end of the round.
A protest filed on Holm’s behalf with the New York State Athletic Commission was rejected.
Holm (10-3), the former UFC bantamweight champion, has lost her last three fights since her dramatic, second-round TKO victory over Ronda Rousey for the title in November 2015.
Yeon Kim (6-0-2) would be making her UFC debut.
