Holly Holm likes a good challenge

"A lot of people know who Cris is", Jason Parillo told MMAjunkie in advance of Cyborg's first UFC women's featherweight title defense opposite Holly Holm at UFC 219.

Holm now comes into the bout following a recent knockout win over Bethe Correia, which reversed a two-fight skid that took the belt away. While top women's strawweight prospect Cynthia Calvillo faces the toughest test of her career thus far against former champ Carla Esparza.

She also is very mobile on the feet, which could give a fighter like Cyborg some problems. "That's why I like these fights that challenge me".

"There's that quote and I think everybody's heard it a thousand times, but it's one that I really believe in, that if your dreams don't scare you they're not big enough", said Holm. "Guess what? Ronda did the same thing, and it's gonna happen in the Cris Cyborg fight, she's gonna have that same moment". "Those are the best victories".

Comcast Corporation (CMCSA) Shares Bought by Centre Asset Management LLC
The cable giant reported $0.52 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $0.49 by $0.03. The stock of CVS Health Corporation (NYSE:CVS) has "Outperform" rating given on Wednesday, August 5 by RBC Capital Markets.


"There's a couple of my teammates that haven't been my main sparring partners in some of my past fights and I thought: Wow, they are really good for this fight", said Holm.

After a long period of uncertainty, posturing and a near-miss at UFC 198, Cyborg inked a fight with ex-bantamweight champion Holly Holm. The loss to de Randamie was for the inaugural featherweight championship, a title which would end up in the hands of Cyborg when the Dutchwoman was stripped for what many believe was refusing to fight Cyborg.

Being "hittable" sounds like Cyborg is preparing to feast on Holm's slightest mistakes in this fight, but the Brazilian standout insists she's instead readying to face the best version of her opponent possible.

Cris Cyborg has drawn big numbers before - but just wait until she headlines a UFC pay-per-view, said her coach. The headline bout at UFC 219 will also serve as the first fight on Cyborg's new contract, which she signed with the promotion before inking the deal to face Holm on December 30.
