Holly Holm UFC 239 Q&A

Following Holly Holm’s crushing defeat to champ-champ Amanda Nunes at UFC 239 on Saturday, UFC president Dana White expressed his concern for the former bantamweight champion, saying he felt it was time for Holm to consider retirement.

Holm released a statement via an Instagram story, not exactly addressing White’s call for her to retire, but not sounding like she was quite ready to consider retirement either.

“I always say I get to live the life of a dream. I never actually dreamed of getting kicked in the face, that’s never part of my dream. That’s like on the nightmare part, living a little nightmare, wake up every morning like, ‘Yup, that’s real, that just happened,’” said Holm.

“But I just want you guys to know I’m feeling good and I know one thing: I’m still pushing forward.”

A former world-champion boxer, Holm rocketed to stardom in her UFC career. She amassed a 10-0 record at the start, which included knocking out Ronda Rousey and handy the superstar her first loss in taking the UFC bantamweight championship from her.

It’s certainly a bitter pill to swallow, but Holm, as is her nature, appears to be taking it all in stride, as she considers her next move.

“A lot of heartbreak right now, but I’m doing fine, I just want you guys to know I appreciate the love and support,” Holm said. “And if you would like to have free lip filler, just get kicked in the face.”

UPDATE: Via her manager, Lenny Fresquez, Holm expressed her emphatic desire to continue fighting.
