Unfortunately, Holly Holm will not be returning to Australia this weekend to rematch Raquel Pennington at UFC 243.

Initially, the two women’s bantamweights were scheduled to go head-to-head on the pay-per-view (PPV) before Holm was forced to pull out with an injury. Now, according to a post from Pennington on Twitter, the fight with Holm will be rescheduled for a later date.

“Just want to say thanks to all my supporters unfortunately upon arrival in Australia I found out that my opponent pulled from the fight due to injury. The fight will be rescheduled so until then I’m going to enjoy this delicious donut and explore the land down under.”

Holm recently took to Instagram to comment on her injury, detailing that she will not need surgery, but will rehab in order to get back into fight shape and ready to fight once again.

“If you don’t know, I have been injured and I cannot fight in Australia,” Holm said in an Instagram video. “Something that is super heavy on my heart and I’m super bummed out about. [To] go through a whole training camp and not be able to make it to the fight. And not just for me, this is a training camp for Raquel Pennington as well, my opponent, who I have a lot of respect for.

“I don’t know the scientific terms, but the ligament or the tendon that attaches my hamstring to my bone, I tore 30 percent of it this last week in training. The good news is I don’t need surgery, but one week’s not enough time to be ready to fight. So I’ll be rehabbing it and be back at it soon and I will let you guys know when we get this fight rescheduled. Thanks again for all the love.”

What do you think about Pennington and Holm rematching at a later date?

Holly Holm provided more details on the injury that saw her women’s bantamweight bout with Raquel Pennington scrapped.

Holm was set to meet Pennington in the co-main event of UFC 243 which takes place next Saturday in Melbourne, Australia. However, she had to pull out of the bout after an injury during the final touches of training camp.

Although the injury does not require surgery, Holm added that one week was not enough time to be ready to fight:

“If you don’t know, I have been injured and I cannot fight in Australia,” Holm said in an Instagram video. “Something that is super heavy on my heart and I’m super bummed out about. [To] go through a whole training camp and not be able to make it to the fight.

So I’ll be rehabbing it and be back at it soon and I will let you guys know when we get this fight rescheduled. Thanks again for all the love.”

Al Iaquinta vs. Dan Hooker will now serve as the new UFC 243 co-main event. However, it has not been revealed which fight will move on to the main card as a replacement.

Holly Holm’s return to the Octagon will have to wait a bit longer. ESPN is reporting that Holm has pulled from her scheduled UFC 243 bout against Raquel Pennington in Melbourne, Australia.

The report notes that the pull is due to an undisclosed injury. It remains unclear if Pennington will remain on the card. Holm would’ve been returning to the scene of the fight that put her on the map in the mixed martial arts (MMA) world. In 2015, Holm became the first woman in history to defeat Ronda Rousey in MMA competition.

After battering the champion for the first round, Holm uncorked a hellacious head kick in the second round that sealed the deal. Holm would’ve been rematching Pennington in Australia from their initial meeting in 2015 at UFC 184, where “The Preacher’s Daughter” narrowly escaped with the decision win.

Currently, UFC 243 is headlined by a middleweight title unification bout between undisputed champion Robbert Whittaker, and interim champ Israel Adesanya.

When do you think we’ll see Holm return to the Octagon?
