When Kayla Harrison defeated former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm by a dominant performance, she proved that she belongs in the very top of the division.

UFC CEO was more than impressed by the performance and potentially has the next title challenger in Harrison.

“Let me tell you what, so going in against a legend like Holly, who’s got tons of time in the octagon, I don’t care what level Kayla Harrison has competed at, I guarantee you she had some serious jitters tonight,” White said.

“She came in there and performed, and she literally put it to an absolute legend of all of combat sports. Obviously, a big night for her and a big win.”

Is Holly Holm done?

Even though the UFC CEO called Holm a legend, he made it clear that he wants the 42-year-old to retire from MMA.

“I would love to see Holly retire,” White said.

Interested in Harrison vs. Nunes

According to White, he is interested to book Kayla Harrison against retired two-division champion Amanda Nunes. Nunes teased her interest in a showdown with Harrison in a UFC return on Saturday.

“I love Amanda. Amanda and I have an incredible relationship. I think that she’s the GOAT in all combat sports female. So if Kayla can go in there and win a title, it would absolutely be fun to see her come back and try to grab it.”
