ABU DHABI – Holly Holm still has championship ambitions heading into Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 16 headliner with Irene Aldana.
“My goal is to have the title,” Holm told reporters, including MMA Junkie, at Wednesday’s UFC on ESPN 16 media day. “I want to retire with the title. I’m truly a big believer in the fact that, if you’re not trying to fight for a title, what are you fighting for? If you’re not trying to be No. 1, what are you fighting for? That’s the difference between somebody who just wants a participation ribbon and a gold medal. I’m always going for gold.”
