A new champion will be crowned this Saturday in the UFC’s return to New York City when Holly Holm takes on Germaine de Randamie to determine the organisation’s first ever women’s featherweight champion.

Holm, a former women’s bantamweight champion, looks to become the UFC’s fourth two-division champion but in her way stands the considerable force of Dutch kickboxer de Randamie in what is a clash between two of the most renowned strikers in the UFC.

Elsewhere on the card Anderson Silva makes his return to the middleweight division where he takes on Derek Brunson, while Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza will continue his drive for a shot at the 185-pound title currently held by Michael Bisping when he faces Tim Boetsch who is coming off a stunning victory over Rafael Natal from the UFC’s last visit to the Big Apple at UFC 205 last November.
