Holm was present at a recent question and answer session for ESPN, where he expressed interest in a rematch with Tate (via MMANews):
“My plan is to compete for the belt, so if that fight is on the way (to the belt), then of course it is. I always like to avenge defeats no matter what, so yeah, I’d like to do it, but I think sometimes you can get so obsessed with a fight that you don’t focus on whatever is coming up.
“Whatever gets you on the belt, that’s my big goal and it would be great if I could do it all. Avenge my defeat, and then go for the belt ”.
