Behind The Scenes

TaylorMade: Holly Holm

TaylorMade: Holly Holm Car Wash

EDITOR’S NOTE: Continuing Front Row’s pledge to take fans places they rarely see, today we kick off a new series from editorial assistant Taylor Garrett called “TaylorMade.” The recurring feature will put you alongside Taylor as she roams the studios, halls, buildings, offices and green rooms across ESPN’s sprawling Bristol, Conn., campus. Additionally, Taylor will contribute a regular end-of-the-week wrap up of some of the best social media moments from around the company, in “T.G.I.S – Taylor Garrett In Social.”

We begin with Taylor’s tagalong with UFC Bantamweight World Champion Holly Holm, who recently visited ESPN for her first “Car Wash” following her stunning upset of Ronda Rousey. This week, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne wrote the definitive post-fight piece on Rousey, including exclusive access to the former champ as she plots her next move.
