Holly Holm has 7 million reasons to get back in the Octagon with Ronda Rousey. That's how many dollars she stands to make if she officially decides to do the rematch with her that has already been confirmed but not solidified by UFC president, Dana White.
It's supposed to go down July 9 at UFC 200 in Las Vegas, and Joe Rogan thinks it's certainly worth Holly's time to train and fight in this one.
“Financially, the Holly Holm fight with Ronda is the biggest fight for Holly Holm. Holly Holm’s going to make like $7 million."
That's clearly nothing to sneeze at. But she's a fighter. She wants to get back in the Octagon before July. That's too long, and this is what she loves to do.
“She doesn’t want to wait, she wants to stay active and I totally understand that, and I think it should be her prerogative as a champion to choose. But financially that’s the smart move for her because she’s going to make the most money.”
Holly, here's my advice. Wait a little bit, go in there and get your money, and see if you can keep your belt. The fans want it, you are very modest but you know you wouldn't mind it. Now let's get it!
