    On Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Holm explained why she felt like she needed to take what, for her, was an unusual step.

    “I didn’t want my name to be associated with any kind of performance-enhancing drugs,” Holm said. “Because I’ve never used, ever. Not in any sport I’ve ever done in my life, not in anything I’ve ever done.”

    While Cyborg is quite active on social media, Holm is more careful to pick her spots, and doesn’t feel compelled to make a statement every time she participates in USADA’s testing.

    “Just because I don’t put it on my social media every time come to my house or come to my gym, doesn’t mean being tested,” Cyborg said. “It’s never an issue, they come and say they’re taking a drug test and I go, okay, so I do. It’s not like I plaster it out there saying ‘look I got tested today’ and let everybody know. It’s not really my style.”

    But in this case, with Cyborg casting accusations -- not just at her, but at the JacksonWink gym -- she felt compelled to put a stop to things before they got out of control.

    “I definitely don’t want that to be even something that would start the talk of Holly and performance enhancing drugs,” Holm said. “I just wanted to put stop to it right away. that’s not how I am training camps off of hard work. I just wanted to put a stop to that conversation before it got anywhere and before people on the internet went crazy.”

    While trash talk is a major part of the fight hype game, Holm believes Cyborg, who has served a PED-related suspension, was “whining” about testing.

    “It had nothing to do with pumping a fight, nothing to do with trying to even talk trash about a fight, that’s stuff’s normal,” Holm said. “But to be acting like, I’m not getting tested or whatever. I was the most tested last year, and even this year, I’m still tested more than she is, so I told her just to stop whining.”


    “I’ve never had issues with Cyborg. I really haven’t. When I’ve seen her, she’s been a decent person. There’s definitely been a lot more attacking on her side. But that happens when fights are coming up keep. I really don’t take too much to it, I’m going to keep training. When it comes down to the fight, no matter how much trash talk there is, or no matter how much one can be nice to your face in public it doesn’t matter. Here’s the fact: She’s going to want to hit me as hard as she can, she’s going to want to knock me out. Same here. I want to knock her out, I want to win the fight. That’s the name of the game, so that’s what I’m here for.”

    For the record, according to USADA’s searchable database, both Holm and Cyborg have been tested 11 times each thus far in 2017.

    Question: do you find it annoying when fighters constantly post on social media about them being tested?

    It doesn't annoy me, but it does make me suspicious.

    It doesn’t bother me one bit what they post on social media because I’ve never had any kind of account on fb or any other source.

    Holly's pics are, in general terms, hotter that Cyborg's, just in case nobody noticed that already.
    The rest is just that, the rest.

    So hold on, Cyborg has been stating publically that Holly's camp are known for PED use? Isn't that like the pot calling the kettle black?

    Reminds me of that stuff Anderson Silva posted back a few years ago about PED users and then ends up getting dinged twice.

    I think the reason why Cyborg likes to broadcast her testing, is many people think she's juicing...Holly has never tested positive, so she doesn't have a reason to talk about her testing...while cyborg might feel she has something to prove...Like she's saying "see, i'm not juicing"

    The secret to any social media, is to never use your real name...no name, no record.

    I think fans of a fighter want as much content posted as they can get.

    Maybe Cyborg is over-compensating by posting it every time... but she did just get popped... so she has some PR work to do in that department.

    Cyborg and her "camp" are not exactly known for their intelligence. It's even more ironic because she trains with the walking pharmacy that is Gabi Garcia.

    What a terribly written article, you'd expect some proof reading on one of the top MMA sites. It was confusing as fuck at first.

    You must live a sad existence if the hotness of two mediocre looking women is the most important thing here.

    They are fighters and not particularly attractive ones. Go beat off to porn.

    No, but it's what you'd expect from a long time cheat like cyborg. It's annoying for her to cast accusations though.
