Everyone was surprised when the UFC shifted gears earlier this week and revealed that Ronda Rousey‘s next UFC bantamweight title defense would be against Holly Holm instead of Miesha Tate… including Holm.

Still, the former world-champion boxer relishes the opportunity to challenge Rousey, just three fights into her UFC career. And at 9-0 overall, who’s to say she isn’t a worthy challenger.
