This Saturday night Holly Holm will once again attempt to shock the mixed martial arts world by defeating a hitherto ‘unbeatable’ fighter in Cris Cyborg. Can she do it? Watch below as John Gooden and Dan Hardy break down the minutiae of the fascinating UFC 219 main event.
Cris Cyborg, the reigning UFC women’s featherweight champion, appears as close to unbeatable in her weight class as anyone in the sport of mixed martial arts. Undefeated since her professional debut in 2005, the Brazilian has made quick work of practically every fighter who has shared canvas with her. Her 16 finishes in 18 wins is an astonishing ratio for top level mixed martial arts competition and she is the overwhelming Vegas favourite to retain her 145-pound title this weekend.
Holly Holm, of course, has heard all of this before. The conqueror of Ronda Rousey a couple of years back once again finds herself in a title bout following an earlier failed attempt to claim the then vacant title against Germaine de Randamie.
If successful, she will become the latest fighter to have won titles in more than one division in the UFC. Can she do it? Watch John Gooden and Dan Hardy break down the fight below and make up your own mind.
