Holly Holm, the new cage fighting queen, had a chance meeting in Las Vegas with rap mogul Jay Z and his wife, to whom she said, "Oh Hi, What Is Your Name?" (Old what's her name is chart-topping performer Beyonce Knowles.)

Holm, a week removed from her stunning upset of Ronda Rousey for the UFC bantamweight title, was attending the Canelo Alvarez/Miguel Cotto championship boxing match at Mandalay Bay on Saturday when she met Jay Z and Knowles at a VIP viewing party, said KRQE-TV.

"I met Jay Z and he says this is my wife and I say… Oh hi, what is your name?" Holm told a reporter. "That is what I do when I meet someone's wife. As I am shaking her hand I am thinking why did I just say that?"

Holm said she immediately recognized Knowles, one of the most familiar faces in the entertainment industry. The mixed martial arts champion said she apologized, but Knowles told her not to worry about it.

"My life has changed a little bit," Holm mused. "Hopefully everything will be somewhat normal at home."

Her life has indeed changed since beating Rousey in Australia earlier this month. Just this week, she appeared on national talk shows "Live! With Kelly and Michael" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers."

"My Facebook may reach a million likes in the next day or two," said Holm. "My Instagram had about 80,000 people and now it's at 550,000 and it's only been seven days. It's obviously been blown up. It's great but I also like my private life, too."

Holm told Fox Sports on Tuesday that she's not a fan of watching her own fights, but because of the all the media interest, it has been "unavoidable" to see her knockout kick of Rousey.

"I never really watch my fights," said Holm. "My first UFC fight, I didn't watch it until after my second UFC fight was over. There's some that I watch right away and if I do watch I usually watch it more than once."

"So I have seen (the Rousey fight) multiple times but then of course with all the interviews they show the film so I've probably seen it like 30 times from what other people showed,"
