Following the devastating first-round knockout to bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, Holm would address her fans this week in a video sent to her Instagram story.
“I always say I get to live the life of a dream. I never actually dreamed of getting kicked in the face, that’s never part of my dream,” Holm said. “That’s like on the nightmare part, living a little nightmare, wake up every morning like, ‘Yup, that’s real, that just happened.’
“But I just want you guys to know I’m feeling good and I know one thing: I’m still pushing forward.”
“A lot of heartbreak right now, but I’m doing fine, I just want you guys to know I appreciate the love and support,” Holm continued. “And if you would like to have free lip filler, just get kicked in the face.”
Dana White following the loss believes Holm should consider retirement, but with undisputed lightweight boxing champion Katie Taylor’s team having talks with Holm’s reps, a return to boxing may be in the plans of the “Preacher’s Daughter.”
