Rolling Stone: Holm vs. Tate and the shadow of Ronda Rousey

UFC 196: HOLLY HOLM, MIESHA TATE AND THE SHADOW OF RONDA ROUSEY
By Mike Bohn, rollingstone.com
UFC champion Holly Holm has a big fight coming up – and it's not against Ronda Rousey.
Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC), the UFC women's Bantamweight titleholder, puts her belt on the line against Miesha Tate (17-5, 4-2) on Saturday at UFC 196. But with the questions she's getting ahead of the fight, you'd hardly know it. At every press junket and promotional stop, the queries come about Rousey – her claims that she contemplated suicide following her loss to Holm last year, her upcoming movie roles, her potential rematch for the Bantamweight crown. What Holm wants to be asked about, however, is Tate, who may prove to be her toughest opponent yet.

"How much time are we going to spend on that?" Holm sighs after yet another Rousey question. "I have Miesha in front of me."
