If I were to ask you two weeks ago who Holly Holm was you would most likely answer, “I have no idea.”
On November 14, 2015 just about everyone learned of the UFC fighter after she knocked out Ronda Rousey. Now Holm is making her rounds and is mingling with some of the world’s biggest stars.
This past weekend, Miguel Cotto fought Canelo Alvarez and Holm was in attendance. Holm, who is now one of the biggest names in UFC, was able to meet famed rapper Jay-Z. She might have been a little nervous.
According to KRQE, Holm made a little bit of a blunder when she was introduced to Jay-Z.
“I met Jay Z and he says this is my wife and I say… oh hi what is your name? That is what I do when I meet someone’s wife. As I am shaking her hand I am thinking why did I just say that.” Holm clearly knew who Beyonce was and apologized. Beyonce told her not to worry. It is just one night in the life of Holly Holm.
I bet that Beyonce actually appreciated that someone didn’t know who she was and could act like a “normal Joe” for the first time since 1997.
