“I would definitely want that rematch,” Holm said on The MMA Hour.

Holm has now suffered decision losses in both of her quests to become the UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion, with the other one coming to Germaine De Randamie at UFC 208.

The former title holder still hasn’t watched the fight with Cyborg, but plans to once her next training camp begins.

“If I get back into training camp, I probably will,’ Holm said. “I’ve seen clips here and there. Mostly highlights of her hitting me, basically that’s how it went in that fight. But I know I had some good moments, there were a couple times I hit her with some good solid shots and I just felt like, you know, in the clinch I was doing some good things. There’s always some things to build on. It always takes me awhile to go back to my fight.”

Cyborg is expected to fight Amanda Nunes this summer, while Holm doesn’t have her next fight announced at this time.
