UFC Signs Holly Holm

The UFC's women's bantamweight division got a jolt of significant firepower with the announcement of the signing of unbeaten Holly Holm, one of the hottest prospects in MMA and a former world boxing champion.

UFC president Dana White tweeted the news Thursday afternoon. 

Long considered the best pound-for-pound female boxer in the world, Albuquerque's Holm held a 33-2-3 boxing record before moving to MMA in 2011. Unbeaten in seven pro bouts with six wins by knockout the Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA product will now look to fight the best in the game in the UFC, with her eventual goal being a shot at champion Ronda Rousey.
