"We're looking for six figures," Lenny Fresquez said of the kind of contract it would take to bring Holm to the UFC.
"There's not too many fighters that make six figures. Right now Holly earns probably more than 80 percent of the male fighters in the UFC, and probably earns more than 98 percent of the female fighters," he explained.
Fresquez went on to say that he's spoken with UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby and that him and Holm were simply "on different pages with the UFC."
"There's no doubt we want we want to go to the UFC, at the right time. But right now the UFC's in a different league. The UFC doesn't have but maybe five girls that could really give Holly competition."
Holm's manager added that she could become a "better" face for women's MMA than Ronda Rousey.
"I don't want to be disrespectful to the UFC. But they also have to understand. They've bought Strikeforce, they've bought all these different ones. Holly's a franchise, as you can see. She's not just your normal fighter. She's more of a franchise, a key marquee. And to be honest with you, I think she'd represent the face of the UFC better than Ronda Rousey," he said.
