ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm is following a good January with a good February. Holm defeated Raquel Pennington for a second time back in January.

This month, Holm was honored for keeping clear of any banned substances by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which oversees the drug testing program for the UFC. Holm had 50 tests taken over the last five years and 50 tests passed.

With that good news fresh on her mind, Holm is ready to fight again and return on top.

“I want to get back to the gold,” said Holm. “I want to fight back for the title. I want to be number one. I think that everybody should want to be number one with what they’re doing. I want to fight there, whatever I have to do to get there. That’s what I want to do.”
