The women’s featherweight title bout between Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm 11-3 MMA (4-3 UFC) and Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino 18-1-1 MMA (3-0 UFC) looks like it is off once more.
Holm’s agent, Lenny Fresquez had this to say:
“Holly was anxiously awaiting the Dec. 30 fight with Cyborg and had been training for it. But we could not come to financial terms for this featherweight title bout in December. We look forward to meeting her under the right circumstances.”
