Bet at BetCris on UFC Germaine de Randamie -123 vs. Holly Holm
Holm gets the bigger name and much more expertise but it is de Randamie who’s preferred in this contest. Holm is 3-2 at the UFC and 10-2 in her livelihood. She’s hoping 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 chance. I guarantee you they can build a branch very quickly. They have only got to make some telephone calls.”
It was believed that Cristiane”Cyborg” Justino would fight to the belt but Cyborg is out of action right now as a result of a failed drug test. Holm and de Randamie is going to be the first two in the branch but more might be on the road for example Megan Anderson who won the Invicta FC interim featherweight title against Charmaine Tweet.
Holm comes in to this battle having lost two straight struggles at bantamweight as she was beaten by Miesha Tate and Valentina Shevchenko. Holm believes those 2 losses do not mean she’s on the downside of her career.
“I understand I’ve two losses, but I did not get schooled in my previous two fights,” she said. “Against Miesha Tate, I was winning before I got choked out. And my struggle with Shevchenko, she’s going for the title, and it was a close struggle. Inside my heart, I know she won that fight. She had been the better fighter at night. I feel that anyone can be overcome, and I have that in me. I have that confidence in me. I have confidence in my own ability. I just need to carry out.”
UFC Picks
It’s hard to get excited about taking Holm but what’s de Randamie done to show she is worthy of winning a name? I will have a small 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 is questionable as to whether he’s much left. He’s 33-8 in his profession but he hasn’t won a fight since 2012. He’s four losses and a no contest in his last five fights. Brunson is 16-4 in his profession but he’s coming off a loss to Robert Whittaker in November.
Silva is 41-years old and that he isn’t the fighter he once was but he has faced far tougher competition than Brunson has in the past couple of years. If there is ever going to be a bounce back for Silva it has to begin with a win over Brunson.
UFC Picks
I really don’t believe Brunson is anything particular and while Silva is definitely over the mountain I think he will find a way to win this one.
UFC 208: Holm vs. de Randamie is set for Saturday, February 11 in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
