Tyron Woodley has some thoughts on what Holly Holm should do next

Tyron Woodley has some thoughts on what Holly Holm should do next

Following her unanimous decision loss at UFC 208, Holly Holm has found herself amidst a 3-fight losing streak. Regardless of whether or not you think the decision should have went her way, the L has been placed on her record.

So the big question is – what’s next? A drop back down to 135lbs? A rematch with women’s featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie? Or perhaps just another fight at 145lbs? Given that her performance wasn’t necessarily a bad one, she has options.

UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley knows a thing or two about options as he’s not only one of the best fighters in the sport, but he has proven to be one of the game’s top analysts as well. And he feels Holly should step outside of the octagon for a bit to recalibrate.

While speaking with TMZ, Woodley shared his thoughts on how he thinks Holly should proceed:

“Maybe do something outside of the octagon. Hopefully something that builds her brand and makes her more valuable inside of the octagon. You know, just take a page out of Ronda’s book.”

Holly Holm’s name still has some bite to it despite her current losing streak. Being the first person to defeat Ronda Rousey will always catch people’s ear, so perhaps she’ll take Tryon’s advice and start to look at some other options to give herself a bit of a reprieve.

“Mixed martial arts is so popular, it might be the most popular sport in the U.S. right now. So I gotta believe that someone will be looking to have a nice little spinoff with a mixed martial arts competitor,” he continued.
