Al­bu­querque MMA fighter Holly Holm files for divorce

Al­bu­querque com­bat sports star Holly Holm has filed for divorce from hus­band Jeff Kirk­patrick, court records show.

The story first was re­ported by TMZ.

Holm and Kirk­patrick mar­ried in 2012.

Ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments, Holm cited “in­com­pat­i­bil­ity be­cause of dis­cord and con­flict of per­son­al­i­ties” in pe­ti­tion­ing for divorce. The cou­ple sep­a­rated in March 2018, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

Holm, 37, whose le­gal name is Holly Holm-Kirk­patrick, is ask­ing the court to re­store her maiden name.

She and Kirk­patrick, an Al­bu­querque con­trac­tor, have no chil­dren.

Holm com­piled a 33-2-3 record and won mul­ti­ple ti­tles dur­ing a 13-year pro­fes­sional box­ing ca­reer. She is 12-4 as an MMA fighter, best known for her mon­u­men­tal upset of pre­vi­ously un­beaten Ronda Rousey in a UFC ban­tamweight ti­tle fight in Novem­ber 2015. She lost the ti­tle to Miesha Tate by fifth-round sub­mis­sion the fol­low­ing March.

The UFC has an­nounced a March 2 fight be­tween Holm and Cal­i­for­nian Aspen Ladd, though Lenny Fresquez, Holm’s agent, has said no con­tract has been signed.
