Tonight is the night for the inaugural UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship. On one side of the cage we have a decorated kickboxing star Germaine de Randamie. Standing across the octagon will be pro boxing star Holly Holm. Both fighters have met plenty of success in MMA since their former careers, now each has a chance to make history as the first 145 pound women’s champ in UFC history. So who will win this epic showdown? Let’s go to the pros for their picks!
Albert Morales: “I’m stuck in the middle, but I’m leaning toward de Randamie with a tko.
Steve Kazola: “Holly vs GDR is a great striker vs striker battle! Holly is a decorated boxer, kick-boxer and the former 135 pound ufc champion being the first to knockout Ronda Rousey. GDR is a phenomenal, undefeated Muay Thai practitioner with legitimate knockout power! GDR is relatively unknown to most common fans but the hardcore combat sport fans know this isn’t a easy fight for Holly. I see this being an all stand up war that goes the distance. My head says GDR is going to shock the world and make herself known as a top female MMA fighter, but my heart feels that if Holly shows up fight night at her best, she’ll be unstoppable. That being said, I have to root and go for the American Holly Holm to win the first ever 145 pound UFC title, by split decision. #thunderbeastknows”
Yaowadee Hurst: I pic Holly Holm.
Irwin Rivera: “I know Holly Holm is hungry and she is a hard worker, So I would assume she has been working on her ground game a lot. So I’m gonna go with Holly.”
Shonie Carter: “de Randamie wins by tko
Laken Jowers: “I am going to go with Holly Holm is the main event! She has one of the best teams in MMA and I just don’t see her losing 3 in a row. I am just glad to see the UFC adding another weight class for women.
Adam Antolin: “de Randamie was one of my training partners for a couple of years. I don’t know if i’ve seen a cleaner and crisper striker in mma, let alone women’s mma. The eye test says, Holm’s kickboxing is not on de Ramdamie’s level and if this fight stays standing De Randamie will find her range and eat Holm alive.”
Din Thomas: “Germaine de Randamie by stoppage”
Celine Haga: “Holly Holm will finish her by 2nd round ko”
