Ronda Rousey says she would like a chance to fight former champion boxer Holly Holm before she retires from the UFC.

Before I retire, I'd really like to fight a boxer with minimal MMA experience and no ground game...just like Randy Couture!

Don't even put Holm and Toney in the same sentence. Holm is well well well more well-rounded, even more so then James belly.

I would be shocked if UFC doesn't sign Holm after her next
Fight

I think it will be just a matter of time until she's with the UFC. They've met before to talk contract negotiations but the 2 parties were too far off on making a deal.

It's strange Rousey is talking retirement already after 1 UFC fight and at 26 years of age.

If and when Holm comes to the UFC I'd rather her test the waters with a much lower caliper fighter than Rousey.
Germaine de Randamie, Jessamyn Duke and Jessica Rakoczy are a few names that first come to mind.

This would be a teenage boys wet dream if it happens.

It's a comparison that totally makes sense...she is a boxer who has only fought low level calibur opponents who are all 50-50 or less and they all are stand up fighters...her best opponent was he first opponent (at least as far as records go). I get she is more well rounded, but the only reasons I see Rousey fighting her is for a hot girl with a name...I guess she could stand and box with her (probably a mistake) but most likely it would be a very simple and overwhelming performance. 1 take down and 1 minute of grappling to secure a submission. I want to see her fight top notch competition. That is what the UFC is all about.
