First reported by Ariel Hewlani for ESPN, former bantamweight champion Holly Holm has inked a new six-fight deal with the UFC.
“The Preacher’s Daughter” (12-4) last fought in June, defeating Megan Anderson via unanimous decision.
Longtime Holm manager Lenny Fresquez told ESPN, “I’m very happy with the deal. We worked feverishly with the UFC to get this done.”
“We’re ready to get to work. I’m sure the UFC will have some great plans to announce for Holly in the near future.”
Holm was briefly scheduled to face unbeaten rising bantamweight Aspen Ladd at UFC 235, however, the bout was cancelled by Dana White.
It has been rumored that Holm would meet double champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 237 in Brazil to challenge for the bantamweight strap, however, the card was recently finalized and the date seems unlikely.
