Holly Holm is facing a great opportunity as she is scheduled to fight for the belt of the newly created women’s featherweight division of the UFC. The fight will be the main event for the card which takes place in Brooklyn, New York on February 11 at UFC 208.
After shocking the world with an impressive TKO victory over Ronda Rousey to strip her of the bantamweight title, Holm has faced some adversity inside the octagon. She lost the title in her first defense against Miesha Tate. The fight was about to go to the judges with a clear advantage for Holm, but in the fifth round she got caught in a submission and was sent to sleep.
After that, she was determined to pick herself up and get back into title contention, but she was up for disappointment. She faced Valentina Shevchenko in Chicago on July 23 and ended up losing a unanimous decision.
Now, she faces Germaine de Randamie and has the opportunity to bounce back after 2 straight losses and earn herself another world title. She is the favorite and is expected to eventually face Cris ‘Cyborg’ in a battle for the supremacy in 145 pounds. Whenever the Brazilian is eligible to fight again after being flagged by USADA.
