Legacy FC has announced that decorated boxer and undefeated MMA fighter Holly Holm will fight Erica Paes at its October 11th card, who is the only woman to defeat “Cyborg” Justino.

The bout will be part of Legacy FC 24, which will go down at the Allen Event Center in Allen, Texas. The card will be broadcast on AXS TV.

The 31 year-old Holm has gone 4-0 now since transitioning into MMA, and is coming off a head kick, KO win over Allanna Jones at Legacy FC 21 in July.

Paes (2-2) has gone 1-1 in 2013, which marked her first bouts since 2005, when she submitted Justino with a kneebar. The fight was Justino’s and Paes’ first pro bout.

Legacy FC 24 will be headlined by a bantamweight bout between Ryan Benoit and Damacio Page.
