Now that UFC on FOX 26 is in the books, the MMA world will turn much of its focus to UFC 219, and Cris “Cyborg” versus Holly Holm.
The bout will headline the December 30th card, which will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will also mark the first time “Cyborg” has defended the featherweight belt she won in July, by stopping Tonya Evinger.
The belt was on the line that night since Germaine de Randamie, who won the 145 title in February via a controversial, decision win over Holm, refused to fight “Cyborg”.
Since Holm’s loss to de Randamie, the former bantamweight champ took out Bethe Correia in June, with a highlight reel headkick.
Recently the UFC posted an extended preview for “Cyborg” – Holm, which you can watch below.
