No doubt he had a say in the decision to take this fight and Holly strikes me as the type to really trust in her coaches guidance. Jackson, who guided Bones(LHW Champ) to NOT take a fight with Sonnen(MW) is now guiding perhaps the greatest prospect in the womens BW division to take on the mighty Ronda, a lot earlier than most people expected.. This is intriguing. Jackson has proven to be highly effective especially when working with highly talented athletes and I think we can categorize Holm as such. Superior vision, gameplanning, mentoring, cornering, etc, like him or not, the fact that he is a part of this makes it that much more interesting. I'm the furthest thing from a Jackson fan and I'll never forget how he shit on 151's parade but they dont call him the 'mad genius' for nothing. Ultimately, Jackson believes Holly can beat Ronda, as premature as that may appear and he's willing to jump the gun to prove it... or they just want the payday.
