Holly Holm - Conor McGregor Vs Floyd Mayweather : Anything Can Happen
28/6/2017


Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm made a successful transition from Boxing to MMA, became a UFC champion, she was an accomplished multi-division boxing champion. She had 16 title defenses in three different weight classes.

Holly went on a nine-fight winning streak in MMA and earned a UFC title shot against Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in November 2015, knocked out the face of women’s MMA with a head kick in the fight card’s main event, and doesn't write off UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor‘s chances when he faces unbeaten boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. in August.

“I think anybody has a chance. I came over to MMA from boxing, and I felt like I had a chance. And I did. I went and I accomplished things,” she said during an appearance on The MMA Hour . “That being said, Mayweather is undefeated for a reason. Still, I feel anything can happen in a fight.”

She believes that Conor McGregor matches the legendary and unbeaten Floyd Mayweather, possessing punching power and fast hands, he would sure go a long way.

“Conor’s got speed, which I think a lot of people can’t handle Mayweather’s speed. I think Conor has good speed, and he can deal with speed pretty well. I think Conor’s fighting style and stance can actually be competitive for Mayweather,” she said.

“I admire Floyd Mayweather for a lot of things. He’s the only fighter out there that’s still undefeated, but I also admire a lot of things that McGregor has done in his career. And usually when he puts his mind to something he accomplishes it, so you can’t ever count that person out. That’s what I’m saying. I’m saying anything can happen,” added Holm.

"The Notorious" built his career off of his precision striking inside the Octagon and his ability to finish a fight with a single punch. Holm believes that the Irishman’s best chances to upset Mayweather lies in the early rounds
“I think if it goes longer it will be easier for Mayweather – the longer the fight goes. But that’s not saying that Conor doesn’t have the chance to do something big,” she said.

“I do think the longer the fight goes – I mean that’s Mayweather’s style – the longer the fight goes he really gets people’s timing and really starts to pick them apart,” continued Holm. “If McGregor wins, it will be in the early rounds. If it goes longer, it goes to Mayweather. Anything can happen in that fight.”
