UFC 208 PPV Odds For Saturday Fights – The UFC makes a return to the Big Apple as UFC 208 hits from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn this Saturday night. The main event sees the UFC kick off a brand new women’s weight division as Germaine de Randamie and Holly Holm duel for the newly created Featherweight Title.
The story behind the main event is the fight that didn’t happen. When the UFC announced the weight class it was assumed that Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos would be in the fight, as she had long petitioned for a featherweight class and claimed to not be able to make 135 pounds. Holm, as a former world champion in boxing and as a former UFC bantamweight title holder also hold the unofficial title of “Rousey Slayer” makes sense, and a fight between her and “Cyborg” had a lot of in ring potential. But “Cyborg” did not want the fight, and we get de Randamie. She has two UFC wins in a row though she has only fought once a year for the past two years her kickboxing style make her an interesting rival for Holm.
Remember when Anderson Silva was on top of the world and calling for a boxing match against Roy Jones Jr? Well Anderson Silva is back in the UFC at 41 years old and the middleweight legend last logged a win in October of 2012. Derek Brunson is eight years younger than Silva and he is carrying a 7-2 overall record in the UFC. he is facing added pressure here because he is coming off a first round loss to Robert Whitaker and is looking to avoid a two fight slide.
