Holly Holm Says Her Coaches Have “Lost Sleep” Because Of Arlovski vs. Overeem

Both coaches and fighters at JacksonWink MMA are preparing for the day that two of their own face each other in the octagon. That day will come on May 8th, when Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski meet at UFC Fight Night 87 in the Netherlands.

One of JacksonWink MMA’s top fighters Holly Holm spoke to MMAfighting on Monday about the upcoming bout between her two training colleagues

“The coaches have literally lost sleep over that one,” Holm said. “We actually had a team meeting before. This is not something we have to overlook. It could happen, because we do have the best gym in the world and we’re producing great fighters. We knew that this might happen eventually.”

“That was actually awkward. Sarah and I talked on the phone about it. [We said] hopefully we’re gonna see if they can put something else together. Out of all the girls in the division, this is like the only one that I trained with.

“It’s not the first time we’ve had to deal with something like that on our team, but this is a pretty big one,” Holm continued. “They were both kind of on this big comeback streak. Who wants to knock the other one right back? But like I said, we’re all in this sport for a reason. We want to reach the top.”

Holm’s next fight is this Sunday at UFC 196 against Miesha Tate.

Arlovski and Overeem meet at UFN 87 on May 8, 2016 at the Ahoy Rotterdam in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
