    Kim is probably one the best 135ers outside of the UFC/Invicta bubble. Definitely one of the best 2 female fighters in Asia above 125. (the other being Yanan Wu) Holly in spite of her flaws, remains at most a much needed name in women's 135 so I don't mind getting her a win.

    She won't beat Holly I think, but it might a kind of fun fight. She's aggressive and throws with decent power, but she's super hittable and Holly will have a lot of reach and size on her.
    I would've preferred Holly vs Bethe, but we can save that for later on if Holly gets a win here.

    That is exactly why they are give her the fight. They need to rebuild Holly Holm, who is established in the American market.

    Nobody knows the opponent, if she loses, she gets a little name, and if she is actually talented, it will give her something to build on.

    For now, it is more lucrative to get Buster Holm winning again.

    With a 3 fight losing streak, they're having a tough time finding ANYONE for Holly to beat.

    Here's her fight against Jin Tang, she weighed in at 130 for it.


    She did a bit more brawling than usual. She usually uses brawling to pressure into a clinch and work body lock takedowns and has shown really good tdd (too bad she's not fighting a grappler). She can crack but also has pretty poor striking defense, often not moving her head and moving in a straight line.

    Well then it sounds like Holly's going back to 135. The UFC really doesn't know what to do with her anymore, huh.

    Girl is a pro boxer turned mma fighter. Could probably KO holm and looks like she is already better on the ground than Holm. Match up seems fine even if she is under sized

    Glad to see WMMA still has no boundaries. Make it the main event for good measure while you are at it.

    This is exactly the type of shit I have been saying all along all these years.
