Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm recently spoke to reporters in a media scrum ahead of UFC 225. Below are some highlights and a video of the scrum (transcript via MMAFighting.com). Holm will face Megan Anderson for the upcoming fight card.

Holm on facing Megan Anderson: “This was the opportunity that presented itself and what seemed good for right now. I’m just gonna take this fight and after that I would like to be able to go back to 135 and maybe fight for the belt. I know I’m the No. 1 contender there. Why not try and go back to that? How awesome would that be to be able to get my belt back? That’s what I want.”

Holm on her fight with Cyborg: “It was a really close fight. I didn’t just go to survive it. I went to beat her. That was my plan — not just say I did it. I’ve said this before. I’m not going in there to get a participation ribbon, just say I did it. I did it because I want the gold and that’s what I’m going for. I’d like to have another chance at it if the chance presents itself. It’s hard right now. I definitely have this fight in front of me, but like I said, I’d like to go back to fight for the belt at 135 as well. I don’t know. We’ll see what happens.”

Holly Holm on what’s next: “I want to win this fight. With a win or a loss, it definitely makes a difference on what my future will hold and what my opportunities will be. We’ll see what happens.”
