Holly Holm: I would have retired had I lost to Bethe

Holly Holm has confessed in an interview that she put her whole career on the line during her fight with Bethe Correia in Singapore on Saturday night. Speaking to MMA Weekly, the former Women's Bantamweight Champion who was on a three-match losing streak going into fight with the Brazilian had this to say:

"I said to myself that I would have definitely retired had I lost to Bethe. I mean, to lose a fourth match in a row would have definitely been too much for me to bear. I am not getting any younger and we all saw what happened to Ronda after she lost to me and Amanda. I don't think that she'll be returning to the Octagon again."

Regarding how she dispatched the Brazilian with such ease, Holm said:

"She just looks tough and intimidating. But all she really does is talk a good game. She can't walk the talk. In fact, if you look at her UFC record it's not really that impressive. Of her ten wins, eight have come by decision with only two coming by TKO. I guess you can say that she isn't exactly the most formidable opponent which is kind of unusual for a Brazilian."

Holm concluded the interview by taking a cheap shot at Correia when she said:

"That's why I am a bit bewildered about the reason she goes by the nickname "Pitbull" because frankly speaking she's more like a Chihuahua to me."
