Holly Holm appeals UFC 208 loss to Germaine de Randamie

16 February 2017

"We respectfully request the commission review referee Anderson's failure to assess a foul and render a decision regarding a point deduction following Round 2, and failure to assess a foul and a point deduction following Round 3, and determine an appropriate result", the complaint stated. Holly Holm was likewise critical of the developments, wondering why the referee did not take a point after the second offense, where Germaine de Randamie did not stop punching as the bell rang at the end of the third round.

Cris "Cyborg" Justino spoke with MMAjunkie about a possible fight with new women's featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie and more.

Most recently, Cyborg finally made her UFC debut while competing at 140-pounds, but now the promotion has made a division specifically with her in mind.

Holly Holm jumped out to a ideal 10-0 record in mixed martial arts (MMA), not long after crossing over from the ranks of boxing, where "The Preacher's Daughter" held multiple championship titles.

Holm has indicated that she'd be game for a rematch with de Randamie and de Randamie definitely seems interested after initially noting that she wanted to take time off for surgery. I mean, those were some of her best shots of the whole fight were after the bell.

Holm, after UFC 208, did indeed say that these strikes were intentional. "Germaine is a great fighter and a win over Holly only helps increase her star power", Cyborg said.

Justino (16-1) is enthused by positive indications that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency will veer from suspending her over a December positive test for a banned diuretic; the fighter says it was prescribed for fertility and other issues.

De Randamie has called for a rematch after an onslaught of criticism from fans and fighters in the combat community. "Holly let's do this again", she added. "I have always trained to fight to the end or until the referee steps in..." I haven't lost in a long time, and I don't think this fight makes sense. "It doesn't matter if I'm going to fight now or later".
