ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New UFC women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm is being honored by her hometown of Albuquerque with a parade set for this Sunday.

Holm captured the belt from the previously undefeated Ronda Rousey on Nov. 14 in Australia.

She now has a 10-0 record after pulling off the stunning win over Rousey in UFC 193, knocking out the women's bantamweight champ in the second round with a powerful kick to the head.

Following the fight, Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry said the city would plan a celebration to honor the 34-year-old Holm.

Albuquerque city councilors then declared November "Holly Holm Month."

On Monday, plans were announced for the parade and celebration to honor Holm.

The parade is scheduled from 2-4 p.m. Sunday with the route and other details to be announced soon.
