UFC 219 gets a title fight!

The octagon will return to T-Mobile Arena next month for UFC 219 on December 30 in Las Vegas.

The pay-per-view event finally received a title fight just moments ago as the promotion just announced that Cris Cyborg will be defending her women’s featherweight title against former bantamweight title holder Holly Holm.

The most feared women’s fighter on the planet, Cris Cyborg, was last seen in action at July’s UFC 214 event where she captured the UFC’s vacant featherweight title by defeating Tonya Evinger via third-round TKO.

The victory improved Cyborg’s current win streak to an amazing eighteen fights in a row and prompted her to call for a match with Holly Holm.

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.

UFC Canada just broke the news on Twitter.

After starting her mixed martial arts career a perfect 10-0, capturing the UFC’s women’s bantamweight title in the process, Holly has now dropped three-straight fights and is in desperate need of a win.

Holm lost her UFC women’s bantamweight championship to Miesha Tate at UFC 196 in March of 2016 via fifth-round submission. Following her title fight loss to Tate, Holm was matched up with rising star Valentina Shevchenko who defeated Holly via unanimous decision.

Meanwhile, Bethe Correia was most recently seen in action at March’s UFC Fight Night 106 event in Brazil, where she battled Marion Reneau to a majority draw. Prior to that, the Brazilian standout was coming off a split-decision win over Jessica Eye which took place at UFC 203 in Cleveland.

UFC Fight Night 111 takes place Saturday June 17 live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
