Former boxing champion and rising WMMA star Holly Holm has her next opponent lined up. Holm is now set to face Angela Hayes, headlining a nine-fight card at an Albuquerque event at the Route 66 Casino Hotel.
Holm is currently undefeated in her MMA career with five straight KO/TKO wins, all in the second round. She most recently defeated Allanna Jones with an impressive headkick in her Legacy FC debut in July.
Hayes meanwhile will be returning from a two year hiatus, last defeating Trisha Clark at NMEF: Annihilation 36. She is now 6-6 in her MMA career, and has won five of her last six bouts.
Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard also revealed that Holm will be returning to the promotion in March. Maynard stated that he’s had a tough time finding opponents for Holm, and that over 40 fighters have turned down match ups with her.
