Cris Cyborg vs. Holly Holm officially set to battle at UFC 219

Cris Cyborg vs. Holly Holm officially set to battle at UFC 219”

UFC 219 officially has a title bout.

With less than six weeks to go until the event, UFC officials were scrambling to find a title fight to place on the year end card with options including a welterweight title fight between Tyron Woodley and Nate Diaz.

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.

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 news was first reported by Lance Pugmire of the LATimes and later confirmed by the UFC. Cyborg ended up defeating Evinger in the third round of their clash. She lost the belt to Miesha Tate in her next fight and also dropped a featherweight title bout against Germaine de Randamie in February before knocking out Bethe Correia in June to work her way back into contention.

De Randamie then balked at fighting Justino, contending the Brazilian's past performance-enhancing drug use indicates she's still using.

It's now unclear whether or not this bout will serve as UFC 219's main event, but it's certainly a possibility.
