Cris Cyborg-Holly Holm Made Official For UFC 219

Cris "Cyborg" Justino answers media questions at the UFC Gym in La Mirada, Calif., on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

Cyborg (18-1, 1 NC) is undefeated in the UFC/ After destroying Leslie Smith in her sensational promotional debut, she was made the headline act for her second outing against Lina Landsberg.

With the UFC struggling to get its 145-pound women's weight class up and running since it was introduced in February, the clash of Cyborg and Holm will only be the third bout to have taken place in the division.

Cris "Cyborg" Justino will defend her UFC women's featherweight belt against former bantamweight champion Holly Holm on December 30 in the likely main event for UFC 219 in Las Vegas.

So, this is a crucial booking for UFC 219, considering the card's six weeks out.

The Brazilian star is now unbeaten in her past 19 fights and is widely considered to be the most feared woman in all of mixed martial arts, which has meant that at times she's struggled to find suitable opponents. She claimed the vacant title by finishing Tonya Evinger at UFC 214.

UFC 219 also features a lightweight contender bout between Edson Barboza and Khabib Nurmagomedov. De Randamie later vacated the title after she refused to defend it against Cyborg.

As for "The Preachers Daughter", Holly Holm was last seen in action this past June where she scored a sensational head kick knockout victory over former bantamweight title challenger Bethe Correia.
