After her recent defeat to Miesha Tate at UFC 196, Holly Holm is not driven by money and re-match with Ronda Rousey, instead saying that she wants a rematch against Tate.

UFC president Dana White has lashed out at her management, led by Lenny Fresquez, suggesting that Holm has put too much trust in her management and that she has "doesn't really know what she has lost"

"The sad part about that whole thing is, and here's the thing, he's an old boxing guy who thinks he is smart and he is not," White said about Holm's manager Lenny Fresquez. 

"The thing that I feel bad about, I feel bad Holly because I don't know if Holly really knows what she lost. 

"I think that she has so much faith in the people that surround her, she feels like 'well they got me here.' Like we had this meeting and Holly wasn't even in it.

"Holly that's your life, you should be in that meeting. Don't leave it to these people."

Fresquez  has hit back at White saying that Holm chooses her own fights and gets whatever she wants done.

"That was not our decision, that was Holly's decision," Fresquez said when asked about whether her management chose Tate over Rousey.

"We do what the boss wants to do.

"She understands, she knew there was a lot at stake.

"She took her eye off the ball for a minute, she understands that and she takes full responsibility for it."

A re-match between Rousey and Holm is still in the making for UFC 200 near the end of the year.
