Holly Holm Asks Beyoncé Her Name Upon Introduction

The new UFC bantamweight champ draws a blank when meeting the world's most famous pop diva.

Holly Holm Meets Beyoncé At A Viewing Party For The Alvarez VS. Cotto Fight

Holly Holm has had a tremendous ride since becoming the new UFC bantamweight champion, so much so that she met Jay-Z and Beyonce. The star couple met Holm at a VIP viewing party of the Canelo Alvarez vs. Miguel Cotto fight this past Saturday. 

The new bantamweight champion told KRQE News 13, "I meet Jay Z and he says this is my wife, I'm like "Oh, hi what's your name?" Because that's what I do when I meet someone's wife. And as I'm shaking her hand I'm thinking, "Why did I just say that? Why did I just say that to Beyonce?" So then Jay Z is asking me about the fight and I can't even focus on what he's saying because I'm like, "I'm really sorry." And I go back to Beyonce and I'm like, "Beyonce, like, I can't believe I just did that."

In the end, all was good between Beyonce and Holm. Since the victory over Rousey, Holm's life has changed to say the least, and Albuquerque, New Mexico has been patiently waiting for her return after her national media rounds. 

Holm also got to chat with one of the Muscle & Fitness Hers' editors -- focusing on her training and nutrition. Check out the interview here
