HOLLY HOLM’S highly-anticipated showdown with Irene Aldana has now been set for October 3.

The pair were due to clash on August 1 at UFC Vegas 5 only for a positive coronavirus test to force ‘Robles’ out.

Former bantamweight champion Holm and her team have pressed on with plans to finally get the fight on in October.

And now that date was confirmed during last night’s UFC 252 broadcast which was headlined by Stipe Miocic’s victory over Daniel Cormier.

Aldana took to social media following her positive test to inform fans she was still recovering from the virus.

However, she vowed to take every precaution to stay illness-free during the pandemic as she thanked supporters for their backing.

Holm last appeared in the octagon at UFC 246 when she outpointed Raquel Pennington.

That was a rematch from 2015 which also ended with a decision win for the 38-year-old.

She has suffered a rollercoaster run of form in the cage, losing three of her last six outings.

Aldana is attempting to force her way into title contention and knocked out Ketlen Vieira at UFC 245 to move her up the rankings.

An official location for the October 3 card has still yet to be announced but Dana White has revealed his promotion could return to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
