Tonight’s UFC 208 did catch some people off guard.
It was a long time coming, but UFC now has its third women’s weight-class at 145 pounds and tonight former 135-pound champ Holly Holm (above) will battle Germaine de Randamie for the first 145-pound strap.
Holm (10-2) is riding a two-fight losing streak while de Randamie (6-3) has two consecutive knockout wins. From a stylistic standpoint, this should be a fun one to watch.
Plus, we see if Anderson Silva can get his first win since 2012 when he steps in the cage with Derek Brunson.
It all gets started at 8 p.m. ET with the prelim fights live on Fox Sports 1 before action switches over to PPV beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
