UFC President Dana White has criticized Holly Holm‘s promoter/agent Lenny Fresquez for scheduling her fight against Miesha Tate rather than waiting until a climactic rematch with Ronda Rousey later this year.

“The sad part about all this is, and listen, he’s an old boxing guy who thinks he’s smart, and he isn’t” White told ESPN. “The thing I feel bad about is I feel bad for Holly because I don’t know if Holly really knows what she lost.”

The Albuquerque Journal’s Rick Wright defended Fresquez, writing that Fresquez has already helped Albuquerque’s hometown hero become a multi-millionaire, and that when Fresquez scheduled the Tate fight Rousey’s return to UFC fighting was uncertain.

What do you think?

Should Holly have fought Tate, or did she miss the chance for the mega-rematch of the decade?

Voting will close at 6:45 p.m.
