If ever gets sick of serving up beatdowns in the Octagon, the star can always take a page out of Billy Blank's book and become a cardio kickboxing guru.

Ahead of her historic title fight against Germaine de Randamie at UFC 208 in Brooklyn this weekend, "The Preacher's Daughter" once again stopped by Live with Kelly for a chat with host Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos. Following in the footsteps of bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and strawweight star Paige VanZant, Holm gave the guest host an intense MMA training session following the interview.

Since she does have a big fight coming up after all, the former champ let Ripa's man break a sweat while Holm held pads and gave out commands.

Prior to the lesson, Holm admitted on Live with Kelly that, despite her intense staredowns and mean mugs, she still gets some jitters on fight night.

"I'm super nervous," Holm said. "It's not because I'm going to get hurt, it's because I don't want to lose."

This isn't the first time that Holm has appeared on Live with Kelly. Following her huge victory over , Holm stopped by the show to teach Ripa and her then co-host Michael Strahan how to pull off a proper KO head kick.
