ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – MMA fighter Holly Holm hung out with the boys at the Fight Night 3 press conference Tuesday to promote her upcoming bout. Holm faces Megan Anderson at UFC 225 on June 9 in Chicago.


In her last time in the Octagon on Dec. 30, Holm lost to Cris "Cyborg" Justino. The Albuquerque native has struggled since her breakout win over Ronda Rousey in 2015 – four losses in her last five fights.

With more than a month left until her return, Holm is hitting camp hard in Albuquerque.

"I'm actually really excited to be back home," she said. "I've been gone every weekend for the last month ready to just go right into training, and [I'm] ready to just be home and be in it the routine. I'm excited to just take it forward. There's things I've been working on it practice that my coaches have been like hey this will work. Start working on this, and so that's what I've kind of been working on in practice."
