Cris Cyborg won her first UFC championship at last month’s UFC 214, knocking out Tonya Evinger for the featherweight title. Her rumored next fight is against former bantamweight champion, Holly Holm.
According to Mike Winkeljohn, Holm challenging Cris Cyborg for the featherweight belt is a real possibility. He likes the former world boxing champion’s chances. Take a look below.
“I think Holly can pick her apart. There’s no doubt about that. What people don’t understand is how strong Holly is too in the clinch, on her feet and moving and stuff. Cris is definitely going to try to do most of her damage by pushing her back against the cage. You know, good luck keeping Holly there and backing her up, coming in that hard.
“But yeah, Cris is really strong, but I think Holly wears her down and is able to stop her. You look at Holly’s knockout percentage, I think her and Amanda Nunes are the biggest out there. She stops all of her fights, everybody else other than ‘Cyborg.’ So Holly has the power to stop ‘Cyborg’ just like ‘Cyborg’ has the power. The difference is Holly’s got speed and her footwork.”
