Holly Holm began training in cardio kickboxing for fitness at the age of 16, training for a year before joining the full Kickboxing and Boxing classes under Mike Winkeljohn, and had her first fight at 18 years old. Her professional Boxing career lasted from 2002 until 2013, at which point she dedicated herself to her transition into MMA.

Holly was the first woman ever to be inducted into the New Mexico Boxing Hall of Fame, on June 28th, 2013.

She signed with the UFC on July 10th, 2014. With her defeat of Ronda Rousey, Holly became the first person to earn both Boxing World Champion and UFC World Champion titles. Her home city of Albuquerque named November ‘Holly Holm month’ in recognition of her achievements.

AWAKENING RATING
Awakening Rating
1678
UNDERSTANDING THE AWAKENING RATING

The Awakening rating is essentially letting you know how inspirational an athlete is. The idea is to highlight the athletes careers so their achievements are not forgotten. Unfortunately we can only calculate based on the information we have in our database. When we uncover, or are supplied with new information the score will be recalculated.

The rating system is very complex and allows for all the nuances within the multiple disciplines. Some disciplines don’t have grading systems, others don;t have a W-L-D record. These kinds of differences have been accounted for. The most essential thing is the overall contribution to the female martial arts scene.

Awakening rating system explained

AWAKENING OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION AWARD

Holly is regarded as one of the best female Boxers of all time. She played a huge part in opening the eyes of those that consider female Boxers as non-serious, for this she deserved the AOCA.
