With Cris “Cyborg” Justino being yanked from the main event of UFC 208 for testing positive for a banned substance, Holly Holm has been named as her replacement. But Holm may have her work cut out for her as she goes up against former kickboxing champion Germaine de Randamie.
The Iron Lady, as de Randamie is known, is actually favored to win the fight. She’s by far no slouch. Back in 2007, she stepped into the ring with a dude and laid him out cold. In his defense, he wasn’t a professional fighter, but an actor. Tom Waes took on de Randamie for an episode of his reality show, and he even trained for three months.
But nonetheless, he got the snot kicked out of him by a pretty badass chick. Holm should be on high alert come this weekend, especially taking the fight on short notice.
