Holm may have been able to take out the most dominant female mixed martial artist in Ronda Rousey, but she was no match for the potatoes. According to J.R. Simplot, the White Russet potato stays fresher-looking longer, with up to 44 percent less bruising and reduced black spots. The variety has been developed over the past 14 years, selecting for traits that will aid consumers, growers, and retailers in keeping the produce looking fresh.

“Holly was the perfect person to prove the point that White Russet™ potatoes are hard to bruise, providing the best available russet potato quality for consumers and a major waste savings,” said Doug Cole, Director of Marketing and Communications at J.R. Simplot Company, according to a press release.
