“We’ll see if she comes back,” Holm said. “I know she’s been pretty busy with her life. Whatever she wants to do the more power to her, but if she comes back that’d be great to fight again.”

While a win for Holm wouldn’t be shocking, the question of what’s next becomes a little foggy. With rumors swirling around of a UFC return for Rousey, it’s led some to look at that rematch as a possibility. Holm scored a second-round head kick knockout against Rousey back in 2015.
During a media scrum ahead of UFC Vegas 77, Holly Holm was asked about rumors of a Ronda Rousey return to the UFC. Holm didn’t seem entirely sold on the rumor, but she made it clear that a rematch is something she’d be interested in.
Holm stopped short of being too excited over the rumors. She pointed out that “Rowdy” has a lot of movement going on in her own life.
MMA journalist Ariel Helwani recently reported that the Ronda Rousey rumors are not true. Reports have claimed that Rousey is gearing up for another hiatus from WWE.
