After yet another defeat in the Octagon, Holly Holm is considering retirement following her latest loss to Cris Cyborg at UFC 219 on Saturday night. Speaking to MMA Magazine today, two days after the former Bantamweight Champion came up short against the Brazilian for the Featherweight title; a disappointed Holm had this to say:

"You know I came into this bout with some high expectations. I knew that Cris was going to be a very difficult opponent indeed and I wasn't surprised by the way she punched. She is definitely a tough nut to crack. That said, I know my capabilities and I thought that I could have matched her. And believe you me; that was what I tried my utmost to do. But to me Cris is a born brawler. Her punches can really hurt you. In fact, just look at my face. The swelling hasn't even started to go down as yet despite my using several ice bags on it and it still hurts."

She went on:

"But after my fourth loss in my last five fights I am now beginning to question whether or not it's time to call it quits on my career. At 36 years of age and suffering this latest setback, it now leaves me with a lot to ponder. Should I retire? Should I drop back down to 135 lbs? Who shall I fight next? Time is catching up with me and I don't know how long again I will be able to sustain this high level fighting before it takes its full toll on my body. I don't want to end up like Ronda Rousey whose career started to go downhill after I defeated her. But from the looks of thing it appears like that's what's happening to me right now."

Holm continued:

"I'll weigh my options then my coach and I will decide what will be in my best interest at the moment. But even if I do decide to retire now, at least I would have retired with the knowledge that I was the one who defeated the great Ronda Rousey - the woman who many thought was invincible. It doesn't matter if my reign as Bantamweight Champion didn't last as long as snowball in hell."

Holm then surprisingly decided to take a cheap shot at Rousey as she ended the interview by saying:

"But thankfully, unlike Ronda, despite my numerous setbacks, I'm not considering suicide."
