Damn. Cyborg all day. Holly might stick and move but will eventually get caught.

Uf, great fight. I am going with Cyborg. Holly will be a moral winner, something like fights with Randamie, Tate or Shevchenko.

Holm gonna drag this into deep waters, tire the beast out + get the decision/tko victory. She knows how to control range and has excellent standup defense.

Still plenty of time for some Jackson /Winkeljohn game planning and sneaky supplements 101 baby...

Cris Cyborg signs new deal with UFC: “From this day forward we are on the same team working together”
Image
“I am excited to be committed to the UFC,” Cyborg said in a statement on her website. “Dana White has proven himself as the best promoter in the sport, and with the recent addition of Mick Maynard as women’s matchmaker, I felt it was time to come to an agreement where we can both work together and be committed in both building the UFC and the Cris Cyborg brands.“

“I am excited to start this new chapter in my career as a real partner with the UFC and the fights we will promote together.”

“Today is a new day with me and the UFC, from this day forward we are on the same team working together,” Cyborg said. “I am no longer in a position where I am fighting for a division or a chance at a World Title. I am excited to have to the full support of WME and the UFC behind me and to see how this will elevate the platform of my brand”.

Great matchup. May turn out to be Cyborg's toughest test.

Holm all day. She's a swift counter striker, and damn strong in the clinch.
Google me, Butch!

I'm a Rousey fan. You may like her or not, but she is an exciting fighter, making her opponents look amateur over and over.

Judging by how Cybor did against Baars in a straight up kickboxing match, I can see this being a very tough test for Cyborg. Cyborg is powerful, but not as technical as Holly. While Cyborg does have a ground game, she isn't really one for showing it off too much and prefers to stand and trade with her opponent instead. IF this is how the fight between her and Holly plays out I don't think Cyborg will be able to keep up with the pace that Holly can put out in the stand up department. With that said one good shot from Cyborg could cause this fight to end in a very quick TKO. As they say "styles make fights." Hopefully this will be a good one. Sadly it won't be as big a fight as Rousey vs Cyborg would've been at Rousey's height of success in the octagon. That's not knocking either Cyborg or Holm, but the truth is the truth.

Hmm...
Tough call here...
I’m going with probably the underdog...
Let’s go Holly!

Holly Holm shuts down Cris Cyborg’s suggestion of Holm’s PED usage
Image
For instance, when Cris Cyborg recently made insinuations that she was unhappy with the amount of USADA testing being conducted on her compared to her opponent Holly Holm, Holm was quick to speak up. Taking to Instagram, Holm revealed she had been tested more than the Brazilian, before stating that she never felt the need to be congratulated for passing a drugs test.
On Monday, Holm expanded on that original Instagram post (which has since been removed), simply saying she wanted to clamp down on any link between herself and performance enhancing drugs before the rumour mill could get to work.

“I didn’t want my name to be associated with any kind of performance enhancing drugs,” Holm said, speaking on The MMA Hour. “Because I’ve never used, ever. Not in any sport I’ve ever done in my life, not in anything I’ve ever done. Just because I don’t put it on my social media every time come to my house or come to my gym, doesn’t mean being tested.”

“It’s never an issue, they come and say they’re taking a drug test and I go, okay, so I do. It’s not like I plaster it out there saying ‘look I got tested today’ and let everybody know. It’s not really my style. … It had nothing to do with pumping a fight, nothing to do with trying to even talk trash about a fight, that’s stuff’s normal. But to be acting like, I’m not getting tested or whatever. I was the most tested last year, and even this year, I’m still tested more than she is, so I told her just to stop whining.”

For what it’s worth, USADA’s database currently lists both Holm and Cyborg as having being tested 11 times throughout 2017.
