Holly Holm‘s manager is optimistic the fighter will be in the UFC, but the sides must narrow a financial gap to sign a deal.

We really need to see Holm in the UFC. I want to see how Rousey deals with a high level striker like Holly.

Unless Holly develops elite TDD, we wouldn't see how Rousey deals with a high level striker anyways. I don't know that Holm is even Top 10 at 135 personally.

Her big wins so far in her 6-0 career are over 8-10 Finney and 6-7 Hayes and those fights went 13 & 15 minutes.

It'd be well over by then.

Of course I'm eager to see her fight in the UFC but people are talking title shot. But what about Zingano, the one who straight racked Tate in a title eliminator? When she fully heals will she be dangerous? I still question her heart because of personal issues she is going through, which could retire her, but she really can bring it to Rousey on the right night, would make for a great fight. Maybe a holm Zingano title eliminator while Rousey films another movie?

Holm is still a prospect in MMA. She's barley top 20 today only because WMMA is extremely shallow. I don't think she will see a title shot personally unless she is Nick Diazed one. She won't get by a few ladies in the UFC to get there.
