UFC 208 Main Card Odds For Saturday PPV

But Holm's next two fights gave her the first two losses of her career, one of which came with her losing the belt she just won, getting choked out by Miesha Tate. Holm's two losses were to opponents who were bad matchups for her. De Randamie is no easy feat, and will certainly pose a challenge.

For The Barbarian, this fight is, stylistically speaking, a bad matchup if Souza can find his way to the mat whether he's in top control or in full guard.

Does victor fight Cyborg Justino? Since Ronda Rousey took over the sport a few years ago, and female athletes were added to the UFC roster, the women's divisions have been going from strength to strength. More so than the inaugural featherweight title up for grabs between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie, there are also a couple of really interesting fights, including Anderson Silva vs. Derek Brunson and Jacare Souza vs. Tim Boetsch.

This was a division created exclusively for the appreciation the UFC and its figureheads have for what destruction "Cyborg" is capable of accomplishing inside the cage. Rousey walked into the counter striker and Holly made her pay.

The UFC opted to go with Holm vs de Randamie instead.

She is appealing her positive test, which she says was caused by a diuretic prescribed by her doctor. While Cris Cyborg has been a powerful name in this weight category, the Brazilian was not able to fight the first title match as she was out due to weight-cut related health issues and now a suspension for United States Anti-Doping Agency doping violation.

After years of turning a blind eye to the world's best 145-pound female mixed martial artist, Dana White and the UFC are finally embracing the featherweight ladies and giving them the sport's ultimate stage. "Now she's in this position with USADA".

"I don't think you're going to see any of the stuff he did against [Michael] Bisping, hanging against the cage with his hands down".

Donald Trump gives up on Patriots 'friends' after halftime
LeGarrette Blount is the team's short-yardage back, but the Patriots made a decision to not substitute by the goal line. The New England Patriots are slated to take on the Atlanta Falcons for Super Bowl 51 Sunday at NRG Stadium in Houston .

At the same time, though, they've all got their merits, and as we learned back in December at UFC 206 in Toronto, just because a card feels cobbled together doesn't mean it won't produce a memorable night in the octagon.

Holly Holm is looking to become the fourth two-division champion in UFC history on Saturday. "Our styles make exciting fights".

"(Waes had) 40 pounds [on me].

When this fight was announced, a lot of pundits were scratching their heads. Therefore, I expect Holm to control the majority of the fight and with four of her last seven going to decision, I'm backing Holm to win by decision at 9/4.

All of this misses the point, though. Live streams will be available on UFC.tv, the UFC YouTube account, and various UFC apps on connected smart devices.

Both wound up providing a wealth of entertainment, Holm vs.de Randamie stands a good chance of doing the same.

She has the better credentials standing, even with Randamie's undefeated Kickboxing background. It was a useful lesson to learn before facing one of the most talented kick boxers we've seen in the Octagon. However, her career seems to be back on track with impressive back to back stoppages of her last two opponents to earn this title shot.

Many in the mixed martial arts world believe it's time for 'The Spider' to call it a day and hang up his gloves.
