                    <p>Next women&#39;s bantamweight contender Holly Holm recently appeared on the MMA Hour and talked to Ariel Helwani about her the recent move off her fight from UFC 194 to UFC 193, how it affected her preparation, and her mindset heading into the fight:</p>

"I feel like if you get so set on a certain plan and it doesn't go that way, then how are you gonna be prepared when the challenges and adversity face you?" Holm said. "I didn't think it was going to come this soon, but as soon as it did I was excited."

Rousey (12-0) is the most dominant champion in MMA right now. Holm, a former three-division boxing champion and two-time Ring magazine female boxer of the year, is not intimidated. She will not be the most boisterous in front of the microphone, but Holm is confident she'll beat Rousey.

"That's my vision," Holm said. "If you don't have that vision you're not going to get in the gym and train for that goal. You never know what's gonna happen when you get in there.

"I really focus more on the act of fighting. But I do envision myself getting my hand raised, because that is the goal. I feel like you can never achieve anything if you don't see it. You have to believe in yourself. I do. That's my vision."

"You never know what's gonna happen when you get in there. I really focus more on the act of fighting. But I do envision myself getting my hand raised, because that is the goal."

I don't mean to talk shit about Holly's philosophy, but how is it anything other than a guaranteed loss at this point? That philosophy is simply not going to work. The whole "seeing the moment my hand gets raised" and envisioning that random moment will never, ever be enough to beat Ronda.

I have a vision of a first round arm bar.
