UFC 208 on Saturday night in New York includes Holly Holm taking on Germaine de Randamie for its first-ever featherweight title. Holm is a former bantamweight champion who handed Ronda Rousey her first reduction while Randamie is 7-3 overall and 3-1 in the UFC. The Principal card at UFC 208 has five bouts as in addition to 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 us look at UFC 208 having a focus on Holm vs. de Randamie and Silva vs. Brunson and UFC picks.
Bet in BetCris on UFC Germaine de Randamie -123 vs. Holly Holm
Holm gets the larger name and more experience but it is de Randamie who is favored in this contest. Holm is 3-2 in the UFC and 10-2 in her livelihood. She is hoping to win the inaugural featherweight title. “I know that right now, it’s the start of the division,” said Holm”But there are so many women that want the opportunity. I promise they could build a branch in no time. They’ve just got to make some phone 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 branch but more could be on the road including 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 had been conquered by Miesha Tate and Valentina Shevchenko. Holm considers those two losses do not mean she is about the downside of her career.
“I understand I’ve two losses, but I did not get schooled in my last two fights,” she said. “Against Miesha Tate, I was winning until I have choked out. And my struggle with Shevchenko, she is going for the name, and it was a close struggle. In my heart, I know she won that fight. She had been the better fighter at night. I believe that anyone can be overcome, and I still have that in me. I have that confidence in me. I have confidence in my own ability. I simply must perform.”
It is hard to get excited about accepting Holm but what’s de Randamie done to show she’s worthy of winning a name? I will have a little shot with Holm and play the rounds to go over the total.
Derek Brunson -127 vs. Anderson Silva
Silva is the name but it is questionable as to whether he’s left. He’s 33-8 in his career but he has not won a fight since 2012. He has four losses and a no competition in his last five fights. Brunson is 16-4 in his career but he is coming off a loss to Robert Whittaker in November.
Silva is 41-years old and that he isn’t the fighter he once was but he has faced far tougher competition than Brunson has in recent decades. If there’s ever going to become a bounce back for Silva it has to begin with a triumph over Brunson.
I don’t think Brunson is anything particular 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 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
