2017-12-30, pretty good fight between Cristiane Cyborg Justino and Holly Holm
: it gets three stars (UFC Fight of the Night).
The Ufc women’s Fw and former Strikeforce and Invicta Fc champion Cristiane Cyborg Justino entered this fight with a pro mma record of 18-1-0 (89% ko/tko victory rate – she has never won via submission) and she is ranked as the No.1 women’s featherweight in the world. She suffered her only loss at her professional mma debut, against Erica Paes in 2005, since then she has won 18 consecutive bouts beating Leslie Smith (=Cyborg vs Smith), Lina Lansberg (=Justino vs Lansberg) and Tonya Evinger in his last three (=Cyborg vs Evinger).
Her opponent, the former Ufc and Wbc, Wba, Wbf, Iba boxing champion Holly Holm, has a record of 11-3-0 (73% ko/tko victory rate – she has never won via submission) and she entered as the No.5 in the same weight class. She won the Ufc Bw belt in 2015, against Ronda Rousey (=Rousey vs Holm) but then she lost it at her first defense with Miesha Tate (=Holm vs Tate); after this bout she was also defeated by Valentina Shevchenko (=Holm vs Shevchenko) and Germaine de Randamie (=Holm vs Randamie). The Preacher’s Daughter Holm came back to win in 2017 defeating Bethe Correia (=Holm vs Correia). Cris Cyborg Justino vs Holm, main event of Ufc 219, is valid for the Ufc women’s featherweight title (Cyborg’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
