White has reportedly informed Holm that her next fight will come against Rousey, whether she likes it or not. Holm became a nationwide celebrity when she took Rousey down via knockout in November, leaving her with several serious facial injuries.
"I'm not sure Ronda will be ready for a July fight. She took a severe beating and I don't think it's in her best interest to take the next fight so fast. They told me she's been ready and cleared, but ... ."
Lenny Fresquez, Holly Holm's manager
White made sure to express that he wasn't concerned with Fresquez's opinion.
"Ronda's never lost a fight," White said. "She will overcome it and be back."
July 9 is the reported target date for the fight in the new Las Vegas arena.
"She got clipped, stayed in there and tried to fight through it. She told me she was in there, she was rocked, and she'd never been rocked like that before. And the things that were going on in her head – what she was doing – she'd never been in that situation."
