Albuquerque Announces 'Holly Holm Month' After Her Ronda Rousey Victory


When UFC middleweight Chris Weidman knocked out Anderson Silva at UFC 162, Nassau, Long Island proclaimed July 17, 2013 "Chris Weidman Day."

But that's nothing compared to what Holly Holm's hometown has in store for the newest UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion.

Following Holm's upset victory over Ronda Rousey on Saturday night in Australia, the city of Albuquerque officially declared November "Holly Holm Month."

In addition to the entire month being named in Holm's honor, the 34-year-old is reportedly receiving a special victory ceremony and parade.

Holm was born in Albuquerque and currently trains at the city's Jackson Wink MMA Academy.

This is probably going to be one hell of a party.
