Stateline casinos host viewing parties for UFC 208
This weekend will be one for the books – Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie face off against each other for the Women’s Featherweight Title in UFC 208 on Saturday, Feb. 11.
“[Holm] currently holds several welterweight titles and is highly regarded as the best female welterweight in the world.
“She also has been named Ring Magazine female Fighter of the Year, twice in consecutive years in 2005 and 2006,” states Holm’s Facebook biography.
The New Mexico native battles Dutch kickboxer de Randamie, a newer face in the UFC scene.
“Prior to joining the UFC, de Randamie competed in the Strikeforce featherweight division. As of April 25, 2016, she is No. 14 in official UFC women’s bantamweight rankings,” states de Randamie’s Facebook bio.
