Just days after her knockout of Nikki Knudsen...
MMA Junkie reports that the undefeated Holly Holm (5-0) has booked her next fight just days after knocking out Nikki Knudsen (2-2) with body shots at Legacy FC 24. She will fight Angela Hayes (6-6) as part of a Fresquez Productions show at the Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Hayes has won five of her past six fights, but hasn't competed professional in almost two years. She came back from a Cage Warriors Fight Night 2 loss to Aisling Daly with a submission win over Trisha Clark at "NMEF: Annihilation 36".
Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard said that Holm will return to the promotion for a fight in March of next year. He's had a hard time finding opponents for Holm and said that over forty women turned down a fight with her before Knudsen accepted it.
Holm went 33-2-3 in her pro boxing career before she announced a move to MMA. In her debut at Legacy FC 21 in July, she got a second-round KO with a head kick on Allanna Jones. All of her wins have been by knockout. She trains at the Jackson-Winkeljohn camp in Albuquerque.
