UFC 208 on Saturday night in New York features Holly Holm taking on Germaine de Randamie for the first-ever featherweight title. Holm is a former bantamweight champion who handed Ronda Rousey her initial reduction while Randamie is 7-3 overall and 3-1 in the UFC. The main card in UFC 208 includes 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 with a focus on Holm vs. de Randamie and Silva vs. Brunson and UFC picks.
Bet on UFC at BetCris Germaine de Randamie -123 vs. Holly Holm
Holm has the name and much more expertise but it is. Holm is 3-2 at the UFC and 10-2 in her livelihood. She is hoping to win the inaugural featherweight title. “I know that right now, it is the onset of the branch,” said Holm”However there are so many girls that want the opportunity. I promise they can build a branch in no time. They’ve only got to make some phone calls.”
It was thought that Cristiane”Cyborg” Justino would fight for the first-ever belt but Cyborg is out of action right now due to a failed drug test. Holm and de Randamie is going to be the first two in the branch but more might 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 fights at bantamweight because she had been beaten by Miesha Tate and Valentina Shevchenko. Holm believes those two losses do not mean she is about the downside of her livelihood.
“I understand I have two losses, but I did not get schooled in my last two fights,” she said. “Against Miesha Tate, I was winning before I have choked out. And my struggle with Shevchenko, she’s going for the name, and it was a close struggle. In my heart, I know she won that struggle. She had been the better fighter at night. I believe that anyone can be beat, and I have that in me. I have that confidence in me. I still have confidence in my own ability. I simply need to perform.”
It’s hard to get excited about taking Holm but what has de Randamie done 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 is questionable as to whether he’s left. He is 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’s coming off a loss to Robert Whittaker in November.
Silva is 41-years older and that he isn’t the fighter he once was but he has faced far tougher competition than Brunson has in recent years. If there’s going to be a bounce back for Silva it has to start with a win over Brunson.
I really don’t think Brunson is anything particular and while Silva is definitely over the mountain I think 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 in Brooklyn, New York.
