  Holly Holm To Endorse Products Prohibited By UFC

Holly Holm, the American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight division, has signed a new endorsement deal with a supplement company that makes a number of products that contain a stimulant included on the prohibited substances list of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Holm recently agreed to a two-year deal and she will be seen pictured next to five bottled products of the company in a new advertisement. Three of these products are advertised as containing DMAA.

The UFC women’s bantamweight and former world boxing champion would be seen endorsing DMAA (chemical name Dimethylamylamine) that is a performance enhancing drug banned by WADA as it aids in fat loss and promotes muscle growth. Dimethylamylamine is banned by the UFC, the World Anti-Doping Agency, and the Food and Drug Administration.

This is the second time that Holm has associated herself with a company making banned supplements. Holm has been tested seven times since the inception of anti-doping program of the UFC in July and all of her results have been negative.

In a statement, the UFC said Holly Holm is a great UFC champion and a role model for the sport of mixed martial arts. It was further added that the UFC organization has not researched the company that is sponsoring Holm, and UFC does not condone any athlete that uses a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.

Holm will defend her bantamweight title that she swiped from Ronda Rousey last November against Miesha Tate on March 5.  Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) looks for her first title defense when she meets Miesha Tate (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) in UFC 197’s pay-per-view co-headliner on March 5 in Las Vegas. This was after Rousey requested and received additional time off after an immediate rematch at the UFC’s blockbuster UFC 200 show on July 2 was tentatively scheduled. The second fight between Holm and Rousey is expected to challenge UFC pay-per-view and live gate records.

Meanwhile, UFC women’s bantamweight contender Miesha Tate has remarked she is not in favor of a second go-around between champ Holly Holm and Ronda Rouse. Tate (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) argues she is a better candidate for the title and added she is not a fan of the rematch in that amount of time, because with everything else that Ronda has going on, plus her injuries, she just do not think it is going to amount to a good outcome.

UFC president Dana White said UFC fans will see Ronda Rousey fight again. White added Ronda has dedicated the last three-plus years to working hard here. Not just fighting, but promoting and taking the sport and the UFC to a whole other level and Ronda has some well-deserved time off, but she will fight this year.

Holm’s longtime manager, Lenny Fresquez, recently confirmed Holm has inked a multiyear contract extension to remain with the UFC. Fresquez said we have officially signed a multiyear extension with the UFC and went on to add that we’ve signed an extension, and we’re very happy with the extension.

Ronda rousey unloads on cris ‘cyborg’ justino

Ronda Jean Rousey, the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, has blistered Cris “Cyborg” Justino for her steroid use. Rousey said use of steroids is criminal and urged fighters to be banned from competition after one failed test.

 Rousey also remarked she is turned off by what she termed as long-term use of performance enhancing drugs by Justino who admitted to using the anabolic steroid Stanozolol prior to her December 17, 2011, bout against Hiroko Yamanak to help her make weight. Justino however remarked Stanozolol use came as a result of bad advice. Last month, she said that she always had muscles for as long as she remembers and it is how she was born. She added Stanozolol (Winstrol) use was for the weight and it was a mistake, but it wasn’t to cheat and get muscles.

The last Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion, Rousey raved about jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing skills of Alexis Davis who she will be fight for a July 5 title defense in Las Vegas. Rousey remarked she thinks the reason why people don’t know her so well has nothing to do with her actual talent and more to do with the way she has chosen to promote her fights.

Ronda Rousey also said it would be a dream to compete against Gina Carano and had words of praise for the skills of former boxing champion Holly Holm. Rousey said he totally adores Gina and a fight against her would be a privilege and an honor. Rousey remarked she will be honored to fight a competitor like Gina, who is an example of what real respect and honor is in the cage. She also said Holm, the former boxing champion, is fantastic and she thinks UFC fans would love her.

Rousey said she does not buy Justino’s argument and remarked she thought penalties for using performance enhancing drugs should be much stiffer than they are. Rousey said penalties should be stronger due to the potential consequences of steroid usage and added she was in favor of random, unannounced testing as is done during Olympic competition.

Justino was suspended by California Commission for one year and fined her $2,500. Ronda Jean Rousey came heavily on Justino and remarked this girl has been on steroids for so long and has been injecting herself for so long that she’s not even a woman anymore. Rousey added she’s an ‘it’ and this is not good for the women’s division. Rousey went on to remark she could ruin the whole sport and even though it’s a fight a lot of people want to see, even if she beats the living crap out of her, it won’t be good for the sport because then she’d still be in the UFC.

Americana MMA owner Peter Giannoulis said Rousey should be suspended or fined for her comments about Cyborg. Cyborg is making efforts to make it to the 135-pound weight class of Rousey so she can enter the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and challenge her.
