  Holm, 34, turned the mixed martial arts world upside down in November, when she knocked out formerly undefeated champion Ronda Rousey in the second round of a 135-pound championship fight at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia.

    Holm, a former world champion boxer, inked the new deal on Saturday in Las Vegas. It is not uncommon for the UFC to sign a newly crowned champion to a new contract.
