The woman who shocked Ronda Rousey will look to do the same against her biggest nemesis

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.

De Randamie refused to defend the title, opening the door for Cyborg to TKO Tonya Evinger for the interim Featherweight title.

Cyborg (18-1) lone loss came in her debut, back in 2005. Holm is coming off a victory against Bethe Correia.
