UFC star Holly Holm is training hard for her next fight in the Octagon.

The 41-year-old Holm recently signed a six fight deal with the UFC and feels like she’s continuing to evolve as an MMA fighter at this stage of her career.

“I’ve been evolving,” Holm said. “When I first started [MMA] it was, let’s just work on get-ups. I’ve definitely learned along the way; I’ve tried to keep it simple but capitalize on different aspects of all martial arts. The sport is evolving, but I was in boxing for 10 years and I was the young up and comer for a while and then I was the veteran for a while, and I feel like that’s how it is in MMA now.

“I’ve seen changes in it, and sometimes I think fighters can let it get in their head like, ‘Oh, I’m on the other end of it,’ just because there’s new fighters coming. I see it as new challenges. I’m still learning, and when I go to the gym, I still try to be a sponge and keep wanting to learn, as well.”

Holm is coming off a dominant win against Yana Santos in March and is already fighting against Mayra Bueno Silva in July.

On Friday, Holly shared a photo after he latest workout ahead of her fight.

“River and I are just excited it’s Friday cause this training week has been a tough one. Wishing you all a blessed end to your week!”
