Legacy FC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm earned her first mixed martial arts title with a highlight reel head kick knockout of Juliana Werner in the main event of Legacy FC 31 last week.
Shortly after her win, it was revealed that Holm had suffered a broken arm during her win and she was going to weigh the best options for her recovery.
After some discussion with her doctors, Holm has decided to undergo surgery to repair the break.
She announced her decision on social media Tuesday afternoon.
After talking to the orthopedic surgeon, we’ve decided surgery will give the best result. So surgery is for tomorrow. Keep ya posted!

Holm will now turn her focus to rehabbing from surgery and getting back to 100 percent so she can finish out the final fight on her Legacy FC contract and making a title defense before testing the waters of free agency.
