Holly Holm appeals UFC 208 loss to Germaine de Randamie

Holly Holm appeals UFC 208 loss to Germaine de Randamie

Attorneys for Holly Holm have requested for referee Todd Anderson's failure to deduct points from Germaine de Randamie to be reviewed. As noted on the night of the fight, de Randamie continued the action beyond the horn in rounds 2 and 3 with strikes doing damage outside of the allotted time.

The former UFC women's bantamweight champion and recent women's featherweight championship challenger Holly Holm has announced that she will officially appeal her UFC 208 title loss to Germaine de Randamie.

The UFC's most recent pay-per-view event, UFC 208, was held in Brooklyn, New York last weekend and there was one fight which made this particular event stand out from the rest.

Raids Could Mark A Shift In Immigration Policy
He most recently stated in December , "We're going to work something out that's going to make people happy and proud". But Ramirez was arrested without cause - something that immigrants' rights activists believe may be a first.

"I have nothing but respect for Holly and the UFC".

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 don't want to cut weight too soon after my last fight", she said during an appearance on The MMA Hour.

There's little doubt that Cyborg has earned her position at the top of the featherweight division, but she still had to sit and watch two other fighters battle for the inaugural belt at 145-pounds in the UFC. Despite stating that it was not intentional at all, she said she is ready to offer Holm's a rematch to make sure the victor of this title is made crystal clear. "I mean, some of her best shots of the whole night were after the bell". "Holly let's do this again", she added. "I haven't lost in 10 years", Cyborg told FOX Sports following Saturday's fight. In December, she was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation, but UFC president Dana White recently indicated that her case is 'looking good for her.' She was prescribed the medication she tested positive to. The Dutch fighter's management put up an image of her Facebook post, where she rejects claims that she is a dirty fighter and is ready to offer Holm another chance to claim the title.
