Ailin Perez has set her sights on former UFC champion Holly Holm. After securing her third consecutive victory with a unanimous decision over Joselyne Edwards at UFC 302 in June, Perez expressed interest in facing Kayla Harrison. However, she has now shifted her attention to Holm, who recently suffered a submission loss to Harrison at UFC 300 in April.

"Holly Holm, you are my friend. As my friend, I am happy to send you to retirement to help you realize that you can get hurt if you keep fighting in the UFC. Mick Maynard, let me help my friend go to retirement," Perez stated.

Holm, 42, has lost three of her past four fights. Following her defeat to Harrison, UFC CEO Dana White suggested that Holm should consider retirement. However, in a recent interview, Holm dismissed White’s suggestion.

"I’m ready to go whenever," Holm said. "I definitely am not ready to be done fighting. I know I’m still healthy and capable. I’m just mad that I haven’t performed."

As Holm looks to rebound and Perez aims to continue her winning streak, a potential clash between the two fighters could be on the horizon.
