Holly Holm vs Raquel Pennington 2 rescheduled for UFC 246

UFC 246 continues to add talent to the card, with a rematch between former bantamweight champion Holly Holm (12-5) and hard-nosed recent title contender Raquel Pennington (10-7). News of the bout was first broken by MMA Junkie.

Their first encounter came in February of 2015, at UFC 184, and resulted in a split decision win for Holm. While not the most thrilling affair, the first fight was a very tough and closely contested bout between the two fighters.

The rematch booking doesn’t come as the biggest surprise. It was previously scheduled for this past October, but was scrapped when Holm suffered a hamstring injury.
