05:26 PM ET 12.06 | Former professional boxer and current undefeated mixed martial artist Holly Holm is one of the top women's bantamweight prospects in the sport. It seems like only a matter of time until Holm gets the opportunity to show off her skills on the sport's biggest stage, but she isn't ready just yet. According to Holm's boxing coach Mike Winklejohn, she has already turned down a contract offer from the UFC because the timing just wasn't right. However, Winklejohn is confident that Holm will be making the leap to the UFC soon.

she probably wants to get some more mma's fights under her belt, as again going in to her bout tonight it's only her 6th, and she's fought on the undercard of the bellator event in rio rancho, but she will likely join the women's division of the ufc
