Holly Holm posted a swimsuit photo prior to UFC 265, stating she needed to go to the beach.
Holm wrote, “This afternoon called for a pool break. ….. followed up by a much needed cup of coffee before this evenings training. Everyday is a blessing in this journey called life.”
The UFC color commentator Joe Rogan recently talked about the potential boxing bout for former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. He had an opportunity to face Oscar De La Hoya for Triller Fight Club, an exhibition boxing match that would have marked the first appearance for “Rush” since late 2017 when the French-Canadian star beat then-middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
Joe Rogan reveals Dana White was against the Georges St-Pierre bout
The UFC President Dana White did not back the bout as probably because he hates Triller almost as much as he hates De La Hoya. Since UFC still holds the rights to St-Pierre’s contract, there was nothing “Rush” could do except accepting it which is a lot easier (and much less expensive) than going to court.

Joe Rogan said:
“Well, [UFC] kind of said f**k you to Georges St. Pierre when he wanted to fight Oscar de la Hoya.”
Dana [White] and Oscar do not get along.”
