Former women’s boxing champion Holly Holm finally has an opponent for her Legacy FC debut. She’s set to face Erica Paes, a 2-2 fighter who has the distinction of being Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino’s only loss.
Since that victory eight years ago, Paes has been fairly inactive in professional MMA. She subsequently lost her next, then disappeared from the competitive scene for almost seven years. She returned earlier this year, going 1-1 in smaller shows in Brazil.
Holly Holm meanwhile is on a roll, racking up four straight KO/TKO victories in the past two years.
Legacy FC 24 will take place on October 11 at the Allen Event Center in Texas. It will be headlined by a match up between Damacio Page and Ryan Benoit.
