Holm in negotiations with UFC

As we reported, the UFC did speak with Lenny Fresquez, the manager of undefeated bantamweight fighter, Holly Holm (6-0).  Holm is currently under contract with Legacy FC and has two fights remaining.  However, according to her contract, she could leave for the UFC after her next fight.  It’s early in the negotiation process, but Fresquez told MMAJunkie.com that the meeting with the UFC was “positive”.

Holm’s next fight is scheduled for April 4, at Legacy FC 30 against Juliana Werner (7-3) and Holm appears to be focused completely on that, despite ongoing UFC negotiations.   As Holm told Bleacher Report

“I don’t want to look past her [Werner]. Because if I lose, then they’re [UFC] going to go ‘well, now we’re only going to offer you this much.”

No doubt, that’s the proper mindset for Holm to have.
