Holly Holm may be taking some time off from MMA, but not before making the Guinness Book of World Records.

Holm made the book by becoming the first athlete, male or female, to become a world champion in both boxing and MMA.

Holm posted a photo of her section of the book with the caption:

“Something I dreamed of….. To be the first fighter to hold titles in both boxing and MMA. I just received my Guinness book of world records today. I am proud…. However, I would definitely be more proud to still be holding the title I lost. This is a reminder for me to keep pushing forward. I have passion for this life. I still dream of success in everything I do. It’s the only way I know how to live. So I will keep learning and improving and working to be back on top. Thank you to everyone who has supported my career and who continues to support me. I hope you all have a blessed day.”

Holm defeated Ronda Rousey in November 2015 in what many consider to be the biggest upset in UFC history. Unfortunately, Holm's luck didn't hold, as she has lost her last two fights. The first loss came at the hands of Miesha Tate, which saw her lose the bantamweight title, and followed by a unanimous decision loss to Valentina Shevchenko this past July.
