Boxing traditionally had eight weight divisions and eight champions. It made things easy to remember and appreciate. UFC president Dana White is an old student of the sweet science; it is no coincidence that there are eight divisions for men in the UFC.

There were only two weight divisions for women – 115 and 125. Women flyweights could move up to 135 or down to 115. Women featherweights could drop, and women atomweights could move up. So the talent was deep.

The greatest female fighter in MMA is Cris Cyborg and the UFC engaged in a years-long effort to bring her down to 135 for a superfight with Ronda Rousey. However, the cuts took too much out of her and she eventually said no more.

That's a weak title fight. Holm has lost her last two fights

Excellent fight! The more champs the better. Whoever wins gets a crack at Cyborg I'd imagine can't wait!

This was originally Cyborg's fight, but she'll die if she tries to cut back to 145. Her words.

She likes having giant muscles too much.

I'm pretty sure Cyborg will get the first chance at whomever the champion is.

As much as I can't stand Cyborg she deserves this fight, she should get first crack at it. I guarantee that if it was RR she would get an instant title match, or wait for her to decide when she wanted to do it. Hell, they even gave her the first belt with no fight.

Just read UFC 206 only did 150,000 ppv buys....

This is a weak main and a weak title fight the rest of the card is ok but not anything special...

Do you guys think this main card has enough draw power to bring in decent numbers?


Cyborg wont ever fight for a ufc belt she can't make weight consistently.

Ya that's their plan, unfortunately Rowdy Ronda is going to lose and retire, Holm will lose and never get a title shot again and Cyborg will finally make the cut for the UFC and take the title from de Randamie.
