Former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm has reportedly turned down a "huge movie" role in order to focus on fighting.

According to TMZ, Holm was offered the movie role, but declined the offer because it would conflict with the training schedule for her upcoming fight.

The gossip site reached out to Lenny Fresquez, Holm's rep, who confirmed multiple offers have been made, and all have been turned down.

"She's focused on fighting," Fresquez says. "We don't want to make the same mistakes that somebody else made."

Oh, I wonder who he's talking about? *clears throat* Ronda Rousey

Holm is set to face Valentina Shevchenko as she hopes to regain the momentum to get her another title shot. Holm originally dethroned Rousey as the queen of the bantamweight division to become the new champ. She subsequently lost that title at her first defense to Miesha Tate.
