Holly Holm Celebrates World Title Win With Hometown Fans

Thousands of people showed up to greet newly crowned women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm on Sunday in her hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico as a part of her victory parade.

An emotional Holm spoke to the assembled and proud crowd, thanking them all for their support along her way to the top of the MMA world.

Holm knocked out longtime champion Ronda Rousey in historic fashion in Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 15 in front of a record Etihad Stadium crowd of 56,214 people to win the title. She promised fans in attendance at the parade that she’s not done yet.
