Both Holly Holm and Ronda Rousey have established a name for themselves in the world of combat sports.
Holly Holm hails from a boxing background and is ranked 10th in Boxrec’s greatest female fighters of all time. She is also a former UFC bantamweight champion and she earned the title by giving Ronda Rousey her first defeat in the sport.

She has been a UFC featherweight champion and is largely responsible for making women’s MMA reach out to the fans. Her rivalry with Amanda Nunes was legendary. She left UFC after a loss against her arch-rival Nunes and entered the world of pro-wrestling by joining WWE.
Rousey did pretty well there too and is an important asset for the women’s division of the company.
Both the fighters have had an illustrious career but it is common knowledge that Rousey has made much more money than Holm.
