UFC’s Holly Holm: Trump ‘seems to get stuff done’

Professional fighter Holly Holm says she admires Donald Trump’s ability to accomplish his goals.

“He seems to get stuff done,” she said of the GOP presidential front-runner during an interview with TMZ.

{mosads}The UFC women’s bantamweight champion stopped short of promising she would vote for Trump, though.

“I don’t know who I’m going to vote for yet,” Holm said. “I’m still thinking.”

Holm shocked the mixed martial arts world by upsetting then-champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in November.

Rousey publicly endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the presidency before falling to Holm.

“I’m voting for Bernie Sanders because he doesn’t take any corporate money,” she said in an interview earlier in November.

“I don’t think politicians should be allowed to take money from their campaigns from outside interests,” Rousey added.

Trump responded by mocking Rousey’s loss to Holm.

“Glad to see that @RondaRousey lost her championship fight last night,” he tweeted after the fight. “[She] was soundly beaten. Not a nice person!”

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor defended Rousey by telling Trump to “shut his big, fat mouth” in late November.

UFC president Dana White endorsed Trump in December.

“You will never hear me say a negative thing about Donald Trump,” White said.
