Holly Holm Just Earned Her Blue Belt In BJJ

Holly Holm

Holly Holm is one of the most widely recognized fighters in the UFC thanks to her incredible win over Ronda Rousey in UFC 193. However, her reign did not last long as a string of defeats followed, including a controversial loss to Germaine de Randamie. She did not let these setbacks dampen her spirit as she continued to improve her skills in response to the rising level of competition.


In fact, Holly Holm just earned her blue belt in BJJ. She has been toiling away for over a year now in an effort to remedy her perceived weaknesses. Pictures of her training can be seen through her recent postings on her Instagram account. She has been doing the work in Gracie Barra under the guidance of Roberto Tussa and Rafael Barato.

Holm has the distinction of being the first person to win titles in both boxing and mixed martial arts. She has always been known as a fine striker owing to her impressive boxing skills and experience. She also moves well and can deliver deadly kicks as seen in her previous matches. Her loss to Miesha Tate via rear-naked choke was a wake-up call. She got back to the gym to learn defensive moves and become a more complete fighter.
