She is slated to go through five fights with the UFC as her contract states, but she was forced to cancel her first fight due to an injury that her people decided was not worth disclosing. She has managed to fulfill two of her fights since she began her career with the UFC and she won them both. Throughout her professional career, Holly Holm has fought in 38 matches. Of those, she’s won 33 of them and only lost five. This makes her one of the best in the business. She is married to Jeff Kirkpatrick, and has been since 2012.
In her career fights, she sometimes goes by her given name of Holly Holm and sometimes by the Preacher’s Daughter. How her father feels about this is unknown being that he is a preacher and his daughter took on a career in a line of work that might not fit in with his particular form of belief or lifestyle. Her husband is one of her biggest supporters, present for most all of her fights and always sitting in the front row cheering her on. As she becomes more famous and continues to fight more and more, she will become more famous and take on a net worth even larger than the one she already has.
