Cyborg's first featherweight title defence confirmed for UFC 219

Cris "Cyborg" Justino answers media questions at the UFC Gym in La Mirada, California on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

Holm's management referred to the prospect of their fighter meeting Cris Cyborg at UFC as "dead" last week.

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.

UFC President Dana White is fond of posting the odd viral video on his Instagram account and, given his association with the world's premium mixed martial arts promotion, they often tend to involve street fights.

This will be her second UFC featherweight title fight.

At that stage Holm looked like she was on the cusp of becoming a huge star herself, but she wasn't able to maintain the 10-0 record she'd built up to that point as she then went on to lose her next three fights in a row, including a previous unsuccessful attempt to win the featherweight title.

Holm, who also fights at bantamweight, moved up to featherweight to face Germaine de Randamie in the first-ever UFC women's featherweight championship fight earlier in the year, created partiall because a UFC PPV in Brooklyn needed a main event title match.

Fighting out of JacksonWink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Holm is coming off a third-round knockout over Bethe Correia in June.
