    This had to have some effect on her performance.

    "
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Albuquerque's Holly Holm won't be punching anything for a while, at least, not with her left hand.

    "The Preacher's Daughter" had surgery to repair her thumb on her left hand.

    According to Holm's promoter Lenny Fresquez, the injury happened in the first round of her unanimous decision loss against UFC Bantamweight Valentina Shevchenko.

    "Her thumb was completely shattered, completely broken in half," Fresquez said. "She has some pins in her hand right now and she'll be back in six weeks to start training."

    Despite breaking her thumb, Fresquez said the plan is still to have Holm fight one more time by the end of 2016.

    After winning the UFC Bantamweight title, Holm (10-2) lost back-to-back fights for the first time in her MMA career."

    She probably went to jones for advice when she got back to NM. Ya know cause he's used to dealing with so much adversity. Jon Prob knew exactly what to do. Break hollys thumb. Bam, he immediately advises she say this happened in 1st round. And badabing bada boom holly has the perfect excuse. Idk about you guys but I think hollys back on top. Thanks to Jon

    Shevchenko embarrassed her, the thumb just makes it seem worse. Still a Holly fan though so I hope she keeps up the work rate and gets things back in the win column later this year.

    Maybe Jon IS a piece of shit, but I always say, the people that live on this forum to full time hate on him are cut from same cloth.

    I would expect nothing less from Holm. That woman has the heart of a lion.

    She even grappled in later rounds and looked fine. As a Holm fan I just wish Fresquez bit his tongue.
