The UFC is creating a women’s featherweight division, but the inaugural title fight will not involve Cris Cyborg.
Last week, UFC president Dana White said that the promotion was planning to add a women’s featherweight division, whether or not it involved Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg. Today, the UFC announced its newest division, and the inaugural title fight will not feature Cyborg.
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie will contend for the 145 lbs strap at UFC 208 on February 11th. The event will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, with the main card airing live on pay-per-view.
