For De Randamie, a 32-year-old champion kickboxer from the Netherlands who transitioned to MMA in 2008, this is a chance to become known as the first Dutch UFC champion since Bas Rutten won the heavyweight belt in 1999.
Weirdness aside, Anderson continues to work hard on her game under Krause, and said that anyone who thinks she is simply a stand-up fighter is for a rude awakening.
She retired from boxing with a 33-2-3 record which included 9 KO's.
Heck, it's common in boxing, and for better or for worse, the UFC is looking more and more like boxing. To that point, Ronda Rousey had been running ridiculous roughshod over everyone standing in her path to stardom. Having settled at that gym at the beginning of her career, the working relationship that she has with her coaches is something cultivated over many training camps, and a lot of title attempts and defences.
In the Barclays Center, Silva will be participating in his 43rd professional fight as a mixed martial artists and that is 20 more bouts than his opponent, the eighth-ranked Brunson. You can be world-class in one area, but you must be able to execute in all areas to win consistently at the highest level.
Nunes has no shortage of potential challengers and could become one of the UFC's most dominant champions if she gets through all of them. Putting Germaine up against the fence, then working off the single. This weekend, it's all about Holm and de Randamie. But not only is she on a two-fight losing streak, so is her most famous conquest. It's tougher to sell a card when the headliner hasn't won a fight since 2015. (Featherweight has a 145-pound weight limit, bantamweight 135.) Someone following not so closely might imagine that Holm is trying to pull a Conor McGregor here.
Similarly, Katie Taylor conquered a combat sport with worldwide caps in her back pocket, so De Randamie is in good company in that regard. It should create a ideal matchup with Holm, a former world-champion boxer. In fact, it thrust her into super stardom but only she was unable to retain her world title.
"I try to be a good guy, I try to be respectful to everybody", Poirier said. "That's just the way I grew up and the person I am, but I'm always working on it as a person and as a husband and as a fighter".
"She comes from a stand-up history". "The Preacher's Daughter" possesses some great blitzing attacks, but when limited to just those methods of attack, Holm hasn't looked as effective. Whether you were one of the tens of millions that saw it play out live, or one of the hundreds of millions that since watched a 60-second clip on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or Twitter, you're likely familiar with how Holly Holm defeated Ronda Rousey. Her last two opponents successfully took her most risky weapons away.
"The company I'm managed by, one of their partners co-owns Glory MMA in Kansas City with James Krause, who is in the UFC and is now my coach", she said.
But just under four years later, the women's bantamweight division is thriving, even as Rousey's career appears all but over. Who will fill these spots and how will the promotion piece will be packaged? I think that's part of the show.
A loss puts her at.500 in the UFC and loser of three straight.
"We're both stand-up fighters, but this is MMA", de Randamie said.
For years, the fighter widely recognized as the best women's featherweight competitor in the world - and, many also insisted, the overall best women's pound-for-pound fighter - was Cris "Cyborg" Justino.
Holm and de Randamie headline the card that will crown UFC's first 145-pound women's champion.
