“I’m meeting with her this week,” White told media in Dallas for UFC 171 on Thursday.

Holm, who boasts a 33-2-3 professional boxing record, made the transition to MMA in 2011 and is undefeated with five of her six wins coming by knockout. She trains out of the Jackson-Winkeljohn gym in Albuquerque, N.M., alongside light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, welterweight contender Carlos Condit, lightweight Donald Cerrone, and many other notables.

Holm is scheduled to fight for the inaugural Legacy FC women’s bantamweight title against Juliana Werner on April 4. If signed by the UFC, she would enter the organization as an immediate contender to Ronda Rousey’s title.

It will be the first time White has met with Holm and her management team.

“I’m going to meet them this weekend and see what happens,” said White.

    Holly Holm’s competition out of the UFC was that good? I kind of feel that it is messed up that she will bypass a lot of the women in the UFC’s Bantamweight division to get to Rousey from the get go.

    I think Holm should fight a couple of times in the UFC before she gets Rousey. For some reason I keep thinking Holm should take on Jessica Eye first or even Liz Carmouche.

      I doubt she will fight Ronda right away. And Liz would be perfect fight for her debut in UFC :)

    Holly will run through all competitors then outbox Rousey en route to bringing the belt home to Albuquerque.

    Holly is the one that never dared meet reigning box champ Cecilia Braekhus. She is a coward

    • deepgrim

      if she was really a coward she would be in an office job not fighting and switching from boxing to mma is not the move of a coward either
