The report claims:

“Still, at this time, there’s no deal in place to book the UFC women’s featherweight title fight on Dec. 30 and bout agreements have been not been issued yet.”

“Holly was anxiously awaiting the Dec. 30 fight with Cyborg,” Holm’s agent Lenny Fresquez told MMAFighting.com last week, “and had been training for it. But we could not come to financial terms for this featherweight title bout in December. We look forward to meeting her under the right circumstances.”

Fresquez did decline to comment when contacted by MMAFighting.com on Thursday, however.


The news will serve as music to the ears of the more optimistic observers in the MMA community, given the UFC’s failure to nail a headline bout for the end of year spectacular.
