Holm: "Apparently it's hard for Rosey to admit that I was better."

Former UFC flyweight champion Holly Holm has responded to a recent statement from her former rival Ronda Rousey.

"Rowdy" previously stated that she came out for a fight against Holm in 2015 with a concussion.

"It was a very high-profile result. You need a defeat of a clear favorite for something like that. If Ronda wasn't perceived to be much stronger, there was no upside. But I fought better that night. As for concussions - all fighters have had them if you perform long enough.

Look at my boxing career - I've definitely gotten concussions. There's no way I've ever used that as an excuse to lose. I guess it's so hard for her to admit I was better. She was a deserved champion. But not that night," Holm said at the press conference.

Recall that Holm will face Kayla Harrison on the night of April 14 at the UFC 300 show.
