The final UFC event for the 2017 year will take place December 30 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as Cris Cyborg defends her female featherweight title against former bantamweight champion Holly Holm at UFC 219.
Cyborg (18-1) has picked up three consecutive finishes since moving over from Invicta FC, besting Leslie Smith, Lina Lansberg and Tonya Evinger, the most the win over Evinger netting her the UFC title.
Holm (11-3) snapped a three-fight losing skid when she finished Bethe Correia this past June. The former boxing world champion had suffered decision losses to Germaine de Randamie and Valentina Shevchenko, along with a submission loss to Miesha Tate.
In the co-main event for the card, unbeaten lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov faces off with Edson Barboza. Other fights planned for the event include Jimmie Rivera vs. John Lineker, Cynthia Calvillo vs. Carla Esparza and Carlos Condit vs. Neil Magny.
