"If she thinks about, if she's basically saying ‘if I win,' then she's got that thought in her head already, so that's awesome," Holm said at a Monday media event. "So she's saying with a win that I won't be able to handle it, but with a win I'll be able to handle anything. That's what I care about. That's the bottom line."
Many were surprised when Holm (9-0) got the nod against Rousey (12-0) at this stage of her career, since general consensus was that Holm was a potential future contender who was still a couple fights away from being ready for a title shot. But Holm says she's not going to rushing into a quick mistake and loss, the way several other of Rousey's opponents have.
"I don't want to go into the fight thinking, ‘she's going to come out with this, so I'm going to throw this,'" Holm said. "A fight is unpredictable. that's why people love to watch fights. You don't know what's going to happen. So, I want to go in with kind of an open-ended plan and be able to adjust along the way."
