Former women's UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm was on hand for UFC 197 to lend her support to her teammate, Jon Jones.

Afterwards she spoke to Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting to chat about a few things, including her disappointment with not being on the UFC 200 card.

Obviously, there's been a lot of drama surrounding the line-up for UFC 200 thanks to Conor McGregor and his feud with the company that made him a star. However, that's overshadowing the fact that the current bantamweight title holder, Miesha Tate, will be defending her belt for the first time against #4 Amanda Nunes.

But what about Holm?

"You know for me, I feel like, I lost the belt and if I lose the belt that means I really don't have a lot of, kind of, bargaining, by me," said Holm. "I feel like I've got to prove myself to come back and, I mean it's sour. It's sour."

Holm is looking past that "sour" taste in her mouth though, and she hasn't exactly given up on the possibility of fighting in UFC 200.

"There's four girls in my weight, fighting in UFC 200 and anything can happen. I don't wish anybody to get hurt, but definitely want to feel like I could be ready to take a fight."

UFC 200 will take place on July 9, 2016 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
