    • Vicki DURON True colors, hmmm. I'm a sinner in need of a savior, thats a fact, and you are a nut, that is obvious. You are so clueless, you actually think a christian lives this sinless, holy life just like Jesus? Lol. Or do you just use that as a club? I dont know if you were molested by a priest or something but you come across as very hateful. Jesus did what he did and said what he said to show us we can't live a perfect life, that we need a savior. You called me a Pharisee, but the pharisees thought they were obeying all Gods laws, I'm under no such delusion. Nor did I ever " tell you how to live" So yeah, you need Jesus as much as I do. I could be a serial killer but my behavior is irrelevant and doesnt change the fact that you need Jesus. Get it?

    • Skinny Moose btw sweetie, I have Jesus in my heart, I question you. You attack me because I commented on a fight. You don't know me from Adam. Yes you truly need Jesus. You are a arrogant, judgmental person. You have no compassion in your heart. You need to look at yourself in the mirror and quit judging others who you know nothing about. I never attacked you on This thread, I simply gave my opinion about a fight. You are the one carrying a bat in your hand and trying to club whomever you think.you can bully. You my friend are a hypocrite. You are the type that gives Christians a bad name. I feel so sorry for you. You certainly do not understand scripture. Or maybe you do, but your arrogance makes you think you are superior over others. My guess is you are new to Christianity, and that you somehow have the right to judge others. Let me tell you something, you are not acting like a Christian. And then to assume you know my history…..holy smoke! What is wrong with you? And you're calling me the nut? You know nothing about me and my relationship to Jesus. But you certainly have showed me that you need Jesus. A think you are a radical. You need help. Now go on and leave other people alone. No one wants any advice from a person like you that is so hateful, lacking and condemning. Quit trying to bully people, you just show your ignorance and your arrogance you emotional pitiful soul. Chill out and enjoy the life God has given you and quit trying to take others joy. It's not yours, so leave it alone.

    • Skinny Moose and you probably are a killer, but it doesn't change the fact that you should butt out of other peoples relationship with Jesus until you fix your own. Got it? Good You are a poor example of someone who claims to know Jesus

    • Vicki DURON There's nothing to be fixed. I'm sealed until the day of redemption. If you need to fix your relationship with Jesus then you don't have one. There's nothing YOU can do to fix anything. Jesus has done it all. Your works are nothing but filthy rags before God. Moses and David were both murderes, yet they knew God. So I'm not sure what you are getting at, but i do know you dont get it

    • Skinny Moose Good for you. Maybe you should be talking to Jesus instead of me. I'm pretty much done talking to a emotional radical who doesn't understand what you are "trying" to preach. Ask God for wisdom. You need it. I'm done.

  1. I really like Holly, I was a huge fan after the Ronda fight- didn't really know much about her before that. That said, her career path is starting to look like Micheal Bisping's or one of these guys that become like the gate keepers of a division but never make it to the top. I hope she finds her way back to the belt and keeps it but, seems like every time the fight really matters she just can't quite pull it off. That's something I remember ppl saying about Bisping many times. She's such a great person though, and gorgeous- and she works hard, you can't help but be a fan.

  2. Holly surely comes across as such a nice, kind person. She never bad mouthed an opponent that I’ve ever heard. And she is so humble and easily admits to not being perfect and still learning everyday!! Holly is a truly wonderful woman and I love how passionate she is about her job. I hope she stays safe and has a very successful career.

  3. The "she must be cheating" question was very odd. I never hear that as a prominent discussion in MMA circles, "She must be cheating"? Weird how that accusation was leveled at her like it's common gossip. Unless Karyn hears whispers from behind the scenes in MMA circles, there's plenty of fighters that are accused of juicing but fans don't talk about Holly Holm like that. Karyn could have presented the question like "how do you stay so fit at 36 years old?". Much more professional and less insulting way to ask about her physique.

  4. Cyborg really shouldn't be fighting in the women's division. She totally changed her body through drugs. All those Brazilian's are drug cheats. As soon as USADA came along, Brazilian's are nowhere to be seen in the upper levels of rankings. Holly is great. Thug Rose is too for that matter.

    • Except that Cyborg has been tested and passed all test so your point is moot. Sounds like you just don't like Brazilians and by the way, Amanda Nunes is Brazilian and she always test clean and she just happens to own the 135 belt. And Holly looks as roided as Cyborg. At least Cyborg isn't growning male parts….Google Holly and male parts and see what you come up with.

  5. IHolly is one of my fav fighters, only wish she would be a bit more elusive and not take so much to the head. She doesn't duck anyone and is a true warrior in the octagon. This interview is great and thanks for posting/sharing it

    • She`s like the female wonderboy when he faces top opponents…. Just feels them out for 3 or 5 rounds and never pulls the trigger…. They Should watch some Machida highlights.

    • first name last name hey bud, go learn something about MMA dude, then come back and talk. She got out struck because she kept walking into Cyborgs fist. Watch the fight again. Besides if Cyborg was so damn powerful, why didn't she knock Holly out. You do not even know what you are saying, so don't bother repeating it fanboy!

    • first name last name btw, Holly wasn't even able to tag Cyborg….hence the fact that she was outstruck 2x. It had nothing to do with power…she flat out lacked the skills. Watch the fight….ish ish and all that growling doesn't count for contact. She was outstruck by a more technical fighter in Cyborg. Same thing with the fight with Valentina S. who is much smaller and much more technical. You don't have to get mad about it. It's just how it goes.

  6. I really don't know what to think about this fight, I really don't want to see Holly lose again but at the same time I want Megan to win, so I can see cyborg beat her face in. If she doesn't win against Holly I don't think they make that fight because that shows she is not on that level at all. Damn it I really don't know who to pick, I'm just going to watch and hope for the best.
