    Cris Cyborg finally got her taste of UFC gold when she stopped Tonya Evinger in round three of their title fight at UFC 214 two weeks ago. Her first challenger was up in the air for a moment, until she herself called out former bantamweight champion Holly Holm for UFC 219 the company’s year-end card in Las Vegas.

    The fight has yet to be finalized, but renowned striking coach Mike Winkeljohn is already liking the idea for his fighter.

    “I think Holly can pick her apart. There’s no doubt about that,” Winkeljohn told Submission Radio. “What people don’t understand is how strong Holly is too in the clinch, on her feet and moving and stuff. Cris is definitely going to try to do most of her damage by pushing…

    I don't buy it. Might be more competitive than the Evinger fight but Cris is way to aggressive to get picked apart at distance.

    In the clinch Cris just takes her down and either sub or g&p

    He might be right... But with Holly looking like half through woman since Ronda I doubt it.

    Although some people do get out of bed for the big fights... If she did the double then shit, she'd go down in legend despite a super salty record

    Holly makes 135lbs like clockwork.

    Cyborg barely makes 145 and has mannish strength, probably due to years of massive steroid use.

    The fact we are even talking about a 135lb fighter who is 1-3 in her last 4 fights facing Cyborg for a belt makes me sad. Instead of this joke 145lb division, we could of had 105, which is competitive and has some hot little spinners, most of them Asian. Which suits my Yellow Fever just fine.
