Listen To The Playlist For Holly Holm Vs. Germaine de Randamie

Listen To The Playlist For Holly Holm Vs. Germaine de Randamie

For ex-bantamweight champion Holly Holm, Saturday's UFC 208 event means not only the chance to become the UFC's first women's featherweight champion, but also a shot at redemption after a two-fight skid.

Holm isn't in any danger of getting released by the company or anything of that nature, but a third consecutive loss would make Holm a tough sell to its fans in a time when the new UFC owners and matchmakers are scrambling to put fight cards together to make money. Her decision win over Marion Reneau can be seen below via the official YouTube page of the UFC. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. Silva is now 40 years old, and though he is one of the craftiest fighters out there, there is no doubt that some of his speed and precision has faded.

Yeah, that's a big drawback, but even with the potential one-year ban for a prohibited substance, the UFC could have waited for Cyborg's issue to clear before booking the featherweight title fight because there's no guarantee she'll be out that long.

She delivered an unbelievable performance against Rousey in 2015 but it was the only fight she thoroughly dominated sans the Marion Reneau bout which was nothing to really write at home about.

. Just a couple of days after showing interest in a "super fight" with Conor McGregor however, Silva has revealed he's still interested in a fight with St-Pierre. She hasn't lost since 2013 and that sole defeat came to current women's bantamweight queen Amanda Nunes. Shortly after her fight against Valentina Schevchenko started, Holm shattered her left thumb.

"I bet you right now, there's girls saying, 'Oh my gosh, they opened a 145 [division]". Justino fight last September for the UFC at a 140-pound catch-weight was debilitating.

Fighters typically cut copious amounts of weight to fight in their divisions.

Silva is coming off a short-notice loss at UFC 200 in a non-title match against light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, and will be in desperate needs of a victory over a ranked opponent if he wants to stay relevant in the middleweight division.

However, she would lose her title at the first defence as she was submitted in the final round by veteran Meisha Tate. She became a phenomenon, appearing in movies and on magazine covers. The new 145-pound featherweight division adds more opportunity for women fighters outside of the two existing classes, the 115-pound strawweight and 135-pound bantamweight.

De Randamie doesn't seem fazed by the criticism being levelled at her and her promoters, however. Her most impressive victory was her last fight verses Anna Elmose in May 2016. Rose Namajunas (UFC on Fox 24 on April 15), Cub Swanson vs. Artem Lobov (UFC Fight Night on April 22) and Will Brooks vs. Charles Oliveira (UFC 210 on April 8).
