Cris Cyborg: Everyone Knows She's the 145-Pound Champion

UFC: Holly Holm's rematch demand accepted, Germaine de Randamie dismisses 'dirty fighter' tag

UFC: Holly Holm's rematch demand accepted, Germaine de Randamie dismisses 'dirty fighter' tag

He didn't warn De Randamie after the second-round violation, and he didn't deduct a point after she repeated the transgression.

The fight wasn't without controversy, but de Randamie was awarded the championship by unanimous decision.

With the creation of the women's featherweight division in the UFC, Justino doesn't plan on ever fighting below 145 pounds again. "I haven't lost in 10 years", Cyborg said.

Four days after suffering a loss in the UFC's inaugural women's featherweight title fight, Holly Holm is still in a fighting mood. "She hit hard shots after the bell, those are the hardest shots I felt the whole entire fight".

Holm has indicated that she'd be game for a rematch with de Randamie and de Randamie definitely seems interested after initially noting that she wanted to take time off for surgery. Understandably, Cyborg saw it as an excuse not to fight her, who said she expected either de Randamie or Holly Holm to pile on excuses in order to delay the inevitable fight with her, MMA Mania reported.

Qassim al-Rimi, who some sources believe was the target for the raid, said Trump had received a "painful slap across his face". Other anonymous officials have said that the raid was carried out without succinctly solid intelligence or ground support.


De Randamie has apologized for her actions during the fight and it was a "heat of the moment" response.

The title fight at UFC 208 on Saturday night was a closely contested bout with de Randamie edging out Holm after five rounds.

"If de Randamie isn't ready for the fight, probably I'm going to fight the No. 1 contender for the belt". "Holly needed to chain her wrestling transitions better to get that takedowns".

Justino, the Invicta featherweight champion, was originally offered a spot in Saturday's women's featherweight fight by UFC president Dana White, but had to decline the offer in order to continue her recovery from a risky weight cut she endured for a 140-pound catchweight bout in September. "I think maybe she needs to take some time away, maybe do something outside the Octagon, hopefully something that builds her brand to make her more valuable inside the Octagon".

Not too many competitors are lining up to face Cris Cyborg.
