UFC 208 on Saturday night at New York includes Holly Holm taking on Germaine de Randamie for the first featherweight title. Holm is a former bantamweight champion who given Ronda Rousey her first reduction while Randamie is 7-3 overall and 3-1 in the UFC. The main card at UFC 208 includes five bouts as along with 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 having an eye on Holm vs. de Randamie and Silva vs. Brunson and UFC picks.
Bet on UFC in BetCris Germaine de Randamie -123 vs. Holly Holm
Holm gets more experience and the name but it is. Holm is 10-2 in her livelihood and 3-2 in the UFC. She’s expecting to win the inaugural featherweight title. “I know that right now, it is the start of the division,” said Holm”But there are so many girls that want the opportunity. I guarantee they can build a branch in no time. They’ve just got to make some telephone calls.”
It was believed that Cristiane”Cyborg” Justino would fight for the first-ever belt but Cyborg is from action right now as a result of a failed drug test. Holm and de Randamie is going to be the first two in the division but more could be on the road for example 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 was conquered by Miesha Tate and Valentina Shevchenko. Holm believes those 2 losses don’t mean she’s about the downside of her livelihood.
“I know I have two losses, but I didn’t get schooled in my last two fights,” she said. “Against Miesha Tate, I was winning until I got choked out. And my fight with Shevchenko, she’s going for the name, and it was a close struggle. Inside my heart, I know she won this fight. She had been the better fighter at night. I feel that anybody can be beat, and I have that in me. I have that confidence in me. I still have confidence in my ability. I simply must carry out.”
It is tough to get enthusiastic about taking Holm but what’s de Randamie done to show she’s worthy of winning a name? I will have a little shot with Holm and also play with the rounds to cover the total.
Derek Brunson -127 vs. Anderson Silva
Silva is the name but it’s questionable as to whether he has left. He’s 33-8 in his profession 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 is coming off a loss to Robert Whittaker in November.
Silva is 41-years older and that he is not the fighter he once was but he’s faced far tougher competition than Brunson has in recent years. If there’s going to be a bounce back for Silva it must begin with a triumph over Brunson.
I don’t believe Brunson is anything special and while Silva is definitely over the hill I believe he will find a way to win this one.
UFC 208: Holm vs. de Randamie is set for Saturday, February 11 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
