Holly Holm ready to return to the win column and make history

LAS VEGAS NV- MARCH 3 Former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm speaks to the media during the UFC 196 Press Conference at David Copperfield Theater in the MGM Grand Hotel  Casino

Aside from those two fights, it's a packed main card and a packed preliminary card.

Holm (10-3) has struggled greatly ever since knocking out Rousey in stunning fashion in late 2015. After bemoaning the arduous weight cut, the Brazilian reiterated her desire to see a featherweight division introduced by the UFC. And Holly Holm is 0-3 since her stunning knockout of Ronda Rousey. I want to fight everybody and I will fight anybody so we will see who is next. Holly went for the takedown and then de Randamie almost turned that into a trip of her own. Tate became the new women's bantamweight champion.

To start the championship rounds, Holm immediately closed the distance and pressed de Randamie up against the cage. And then with an opportunity to rise back to title contention, Holm was defeated by Valentina Shevchenko via unanimous decision in July. Schevchenko was able to get in and out of the reach of Holm and outstrike her, winning four of the five rounds on the judges scorecards.

The Swanson vs. Lobov booking is a bit head-scratching considering Swanson's surging stock in the featherweight division, but I guess this just goes to show the power of trash-talking.

Does victor fight Cyborg Justino?

Cris "Cyborg" Justino (red gloves) lands a punch to the face of Leslie Smith (blue gloves) during UFC Fight Night at Arena Atletico Paranaense. That means approximately 11 months of "Cyborg"-free MMA in the UFC's women's 145-pound division". It would certainly strengthen the argument if she can become a two-weight champion in the UFC. But those plans went array when Cyborg failed a USADA random drug test in December of past year.

Holm ended the third round with a big high kick, and followed with another kick and appeared to have de Randamie on the defensive.de Randamie recovered and began the onslaught and landed another strike after the bell at the end of the round. The hook of the fight is that Holm is a world champion boxer and De Randamie a world class muay thai kickboxer. A lot of people still say "congratulations on that fight" but in my heart and what I am remembering are my losses. Live streams will be available on UFC.tv, the UFC YouTube account, and various UFC apps on connected smart devices. Much to the surprise of the MMA world, Justino apparently turned down the fight with Holm, leading to the match-up with de Randamie.
