You may know Holly Holm for winning the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship, however, there’s a lot you probably don’t know about the Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Here are six surprising facts. Her nickname is ‘The Preacher’s Daughter.’ Holm’s father was a preacher at Bosque Farms Church for 18 years. However, while you might think her chosen profession would go against her father’s beliefs, he’s one of her biggest supporters.


While Holly currently has the UFC talking, she began her career as a championship boxer. Her record is 33-2-3 with nine of those being knockouts. In 2013, Holm was inducted into New Mexico’s Boxing Hall of Fame and holds 19 world championships.


Interestingly enough, it was an aerobics class that set her off on her path to the UFC octagon. After taking a class to keep in shape, she noticed a kickboxing class and thought it looked cool. After honing her craft with kickboxing, she competed in her first boxing match in 2002, defeating her opponent in a third round TKO. In 2014, Holm made headlines for turning down a reported $250,000 to return to boxing. However, it appears that worked out well for her as her current net worth is estimated at around one million dollars.


While she’s known for winning in the ring, Holly Holm is also winning in her personal life as well. The fighter was married in April of 2012 to husband Jeff Kirkpatrick who is also from New Mexico, having graduated from the University of New Mexico’s finance and accounting program in 2002. Since her MMA debut in 2011, Holly has never been defeated. The champion has won each of her 10 MMA competitions, winning seven fights by knockout and three by decision, one of them resulting in her current championship. While Holly Holm’s star is surely only beginning to rise, she’s already got her eye on the prize, expected to defend her title in a rematch at UFC200 in July 2016. Her win also earned her, her first Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night bonus awards.
