Previewing and predicting UFC 208 main card events
There was still weight to gain for Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie on Friday when they each came in under the 145-pound weight limit for the UFC's newly created women's featherweight division. Holm could bounce back from consecutive losses that have since colored the former champion as a potential one-hit wonder. Now, according to de Randamie, women will be able to maintain healthier eating habits in the weeks leading up to fights. He described the dream fight as the best show for the MMA. "But we're good to go and there's no place we can't go".
Cyborg said she could have fought in March but was on doctors orders not to compete before then, so the UFC pushed forward and booked a matchup between Holm and De Randamie.
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.
De Randamie will become the company's first-ever 145-pound champion and will likely take on Cris Cyborg if she is given an exemption from her suspension.
All would have worked out so long as Justino remained dominant inside the cage - a safe bet the UFC was willing to ride on as 2017 came into the fold.

She won a boxing match by knocking out a man, Tom Waes, apparently feeling the need to use it as justification for her presence in the main event. She is appealing the test, conducted by USADA, but faces the possibility of a lengthy suspension. The UFC added a strawweight (115-pound) division after the success Rousey and her peers achieved.
"I did everything I could to make weight for the fight this weekend but due to the short notice my body shut down during the weight cut and the UFC doctors wouldn't clear me to fight", Willis said. "Now she's in this position with USADA". "I've fought the best, the top of the top, the best female fighters in the world - in three weight divisions". By taking the Dutch striker off her feet into a world of combat she is not comfortable in, Holm will have her best chance to get the finish or earn a decision.
So far the feature attraction of UFC 208, a first ever title fight for female fighters in the octagon at 145lbs, has not drummed up an huge amount of interest, in large part because the best woman at that weight won't participate and the two that will aren't even fixtures in the division. Instead, it seems like we're getting a product birthed from the need to book a title fight, using alternate pieces that just happen to be available, like, hey, you free February 11? In a different category, in my category, I don't know, but fight is my life. "Everyone is ready to fight and it's a coin-flip in a lot of the fights". "I've had an awesome career so far already", de Randamie said on a conference call for UFC 208.
All of this misses the point, though.
Silva and Brunson seemed more amped for a night on the town than a few rounds in the cage. The boxing environment is obviously one Holm is comfortable with. Though de Randamie hasn't yet achieved in MMA what Holm has, the Utrecht resident has lost just once since 2012, with that defeat coming at the hands of current Terminator Amanda Nunes.
