I would take Askren's credentials over Holm's, and the UFC wasn't willing to pay his price, which I'm guessing was less. Yeah she's a boxing world champion, but Askren was a Bellator MMA champion, Olympic wrestler and 2 time NCAA national champion wrestler, which in my mind is greater than a boxing champion

I agree on your credentials point. Though Holly comes with less mouth and headaches. Plus entertaining value Holly steals the show.

Holm's is definitely a lot more marketable as well. It's just that most boxers haven't done too well when transitioning over. If I'm not mistaken, James Tony had quite a few boxing world title's and he didnt fair too well once in the cage.

one was a fat and old boxer who never took MMA seriously, the other is still in her fight prime while competing in MMA

Edit: Holly's a kickboxer too so her transition to mma will be smoother than most boxers, and already has

She'd have to clear out a division in Invicta before she'll even get in the ballpark of commanding that kind of money.



I agree. She's not even top ten in MMA. If she was Invicta champ, then her asking price wouldn't be so ridiculous.

I'd like to see her fight Rousey one day, and Zuffa may bite because they could use Holms combat sports credentials to hype the fight, But if Holm is greedy then she might screw herself out of the chance to fight Rousey.

She should just push for a PPV fight so she can get the PPV bonus instead of haggling over pay.

TUF winners get a six figure contract. A 4 fight contract worth $25,000 base each fight isn't asking too much. No where does it say she demands six figures for a single fight

Holm is def worth the money in this growing division..they need all the stars the can get..and unlike Askren, Holm will actually put on a show..it's all bout marketing and making money..and i'm sure Dana is more interested in picking up Holm then he was with Askren..we'll see Holm in the UFC before Askren..

It doesn't say it exactly but that's the way the article makes it sound.


Se we're just waiting for the UFC to give Holly the right opportunity, because we want a title fight


When asked what amount they were looking for for Holm's debut, Fresquez was clear.


We're looking for six figures," he replied. "And there's not too many fighters that make six figures. Right now Holly earns probably more than 80% of the male fighters in the UFC, and probably earns more than 98% of the female fighters."


He also claimed she's a brand all to herself and compared acquiring her for the UFC to acquiring Strikeforce.

She needs new management.

I couldn't agree more

No matter what she did in boxing, she's yet to accomplish much in MMA.

As far as I'm concerned Rousey hasn't accomplished much either
