When you beat the UFC’s biggest star for a title, you get rewarded.
That’s exactly what happened to UFC women’s bantamweight champ Holly Holm as she revealed in a recent interview with ESPN that she met with UFC officials recently to agree on a new contract extension.
Holm admitted she is very happy with the multi-year extension which means she probably got a really good payday.
Terms of the deal, including the number of fights and pay, were not disclosed.
“We have officially signed a multi-year extension with the UFC,” her manager, Lenny Fresquez, told ESPN.com. “That’s all I can verify right now. We’ve signed an extension, and we’re very happy with the extension.”
Holm is coming off a win over Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in which she dominated Rousey before knocking her out in devastating fashion.
