Holly Holm UFC Record

Holly Holm made her UFC debut in 2015 and quickly gained attention. She shocked the world by defeating Ronda Rousey in 2015, becoming the bantamweight champion. However, she lost the title to Miesha Tate in 2016. Despite some setbacks, she continued to compete in both bantamweight and featherweight divisions, securing victories against opponents like Bethe Correia and Megan Anderson.


Holm faced challenges with injuries and fight cancellations but remained resilient. Notable among her recent fights was a controversial loss to Ketlen Vieira in 2022. With one fight left on her contract, she signed a new six-fight deal with the UFC. She has since maintained her competitive spirit, securing wins against Yana Santos and facing a tough loss to Mayra Bueno Silva, which was later overturned due to a failed drug test by Bueno Silva. Currently, Holm is set to face Kayla Harrison at UFC 300.
