Holm is a former bantamweight champion who given Ronda Rousey her first reduction while de Randamie is 7-3 overall and 3-1 in the UFC. The Principal card at UFC 208 includes five bouts as along with Holm vs. de Randamie it’s Anderson Silva vs. Derek Brunson, Glover Teixeira vs. Jared Cannonier, Ronaldo Souza vs. Tim Boetsch and Dustin Poirier vs. Jim Miller. Let’s look at UFC 208 having an eye on Holm vs. de Randamie and Silva vs. Brunson and UFC picks.
Bet on UFC in BetCris Germaine de Randamie -123 vs. Holly Holm
Holm gets experience and the larger name but it is de Randamie who is preferred in this contest. Holm is 10-2 in her career and 3-2 in the UFC. She is expecting to win the inaugural featherweight title. “I understand that right now, it’s the start of the division,” said Holm”However there are several girls that want the opportunity. I guarantee you they could build a division very quickly. They’ve only got to make some telephone calls.”
It was believed that Cristiane”Cyborg” Justino would fight for the belt but Cyborg is out of action right now as a result of a failed drug test. Holm and de Randamie is going to be the first two in the division but more might be on the way for example Megan Anderson who won the Invicta FC interim featherweight title against Charmaine Tweet.
Holm comes into this fight having lost two straight struggles at bantamweight as she was conquered by Miesha Tate and Valentina Shevchenko. Holm considers those two losses do not mean she’s on the downside of her livelihood.
“I know I’ve two losses, but I did not get schooled in my previous two fights,” she explained. “Against Miesha Tate, I was winning before I got choked out. And my fight with Shevchenko, she is going for the title, and it was a close struggle. Inside my heart, I know she won this fight. She was the better fighter that night. I feel that anybody can be overcome, and I have that in me. I have that confidence in me. I have confidence in my own ability. I simply need to perform.”
It’s hard to get excited about accepting Holm but what’s de Randamie performed to reveal she is worthy of winning a name? I will take a little shot with Holm and also play with the rounds to cover the total.
Derek Brunson -127 vs. Anderson Silva
Silva is the marquee name but it’s questionable as to whether he has much left. He’s 33-8 in his career but he has not won a fight since 2012. He’s four losses and a no competition in his last five fights. Brunson is 16-4 in his profession but he is coming off a loss to Robert Whittaker in November.
Silva is 41-years old and he is not the fighter he once was but he’s faced far tougher competition than Brunson has in recent years. If there is going to become a bounce back for Silva it has to begin with a triumph over Brunson.
I really don’t believe Brunson is anything special and while Silva is definitely over the mountain I believe he will find a way to win this one.
UFC 208: Holm vs. de Randamie is set for Saturday, February 11 in the Barclays Center at Brooklyn, New York.
