Holly Holm is very much focused on her UFC 235 matchup with Aspen Ladd, but it hasn't stopped her from pondering a possible future fight with two-division champ Amanda Nunes.
Holm (12-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC), the former UFC bantamweight champion takes on Ladd (7-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in a pivotal 135-pound match at UFC 235 in March. The fight marks Holm's bantamweight return after a brief hiatus in the featherweight division.
Holm didn't specify what weight at which she wants to fight Nunes, but it will most likely be at 145 pounds after she stated that Cris Cyborg is still more deserving of a rematch first.
Holm isn't looking past her current opponent though. As she told MMAjunkie:
“There’s always short goals and long goals. Yes, I would love to be able to fight with Nunes. It’s one of the things that could happen. I’m just 100 percent into Aspen Ladd right now.”
