Close to two years to the date of arguably the biggest upset in UFC history, the organization announced Holly Holm’s next gigantic challenge — conquering Cris “Cyborg” Justino for the UFC Featherweight Championship.
Holm defeated Ronda Rousey in November 2015 by way of knockout, and now she’ll face Rousey’s biggest nemesis in a showdown that should be epic.
Holm (11-3), a kickboxer, isn’t afraid to stand and strike. After being choked out by Miesha Tate in her first title defense, Holm proceeded to lose a decision bout against Valentina Shevchenko, then a questionable loss to Germaine de Randamie.
Cyborg (18-1) lone loss came in her debut, back in 2005. Holm is coming off a victory against Bethe Correia.
