The word "rematch" is floating around the
as much as "reboot" is floating around Hollywood. Right now rematches are what's in. There are currently 4 rematches scheduled and that doesn't include the possible rematch between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo, the possible Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit matchup or the highly probable Nate Diaz-Rafael dos Anjos bout.
If all of those lined up up, that would mean 7 out of the 10 belts that are in contention are fights that fans have already seen before.
Let's face it, we might as well make it 8, because if Ronda Rousey gets her matchup with Miesha Tate later this year, that's where we'll be at.
But there's another rematch matchup that one fighter wants to happen and that's Holly Holm. Holm sat down on JacksonWink Raw to chat about what lies ahead.
"I want a rematch. Miesha's been around a long time. She's a tough champion so I'm sure she'll want to take the fight so let's do it."
Holm admitted that she has yet to watch the video of her loss to Tate, but is pretty sure she knows what mistakes he's made and won't make them again.
"I haven't watched it, but I've replayed [the fight] in my head 1000 times," said Holm. "Not just the last round but the second round, as well. It's obviously something I need to work on. There's a lot of things I wasn't doing right, things that I know better, already."
By the sounds of it, Holm recognizes her mistakes and is ready to look to the future.
"I'm doing fine. I'm healthy, I'm good. I could train tomorrow. As far as my heart, I'm heartbroken. It's a sour ending to UFC 196 but I'm ready to get back."
If Holm has her way, the only future she could see would be a future fighting Tate. She has one plea for the newly crowned champ, a plea that came with a warning:
"I gave you a shot, give me a shot. I'm not going to let you choke me out again."
While nothing has been carved in stone, UFC president Dana White has pretty much guaranteed a Rousey-Tate three-peat later this year. That's IF Rousey wants it and there's no way to know if she does. Rousey will be spending much of 2016 filming movies, so only time will tell if she'll be mentally and physically ready to reclaim her belt from Tate.
