Coach: Holly Holm Would Fight ‘Cyborg’ ‘In a Heart Beat’

In the wake of her earth-shattering victory over Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm is standing squarely in the middle of the spotlight. Many of the “dream matches” fantasized about involving Rousey have now been given to Holm. A fight with Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino is at the top of the list.

Would Holm fight “Cyborg”? Her coach Mike Winkeljohn thinks so.

“I’ll tell you what: Holly has never turned down a fight before in her life. It won’t be on Holly’s terms if she turns down a fight, unless she retires. Holly will fight anybody, anywhere. She’s that tough, mentally. She believes in herself and what she can do,” Winkeljohn told Talking BrawlsMMA.com. “Cris Cyborg is just incredible with her strength and with what she can so. I don’t know if she can make the weight at 135lbs, yet. She’s got a lot of holes in her game, a lot of craziness. That girl is so strong, so we’d have to be worried about it, but Holly would fight her in a heart beat.”

It’s unlikely those two clash in the near future. A rematch with Rousey is almost certainly on the horizon at some point and that fight will likely take precedent.
