    Holly Holm seeks to cement legacy and make history at UFC 208

    Sports

    Just over a week after the fight was announced, the news of Cyborg's brush with the United States Anti-Doping Agency emerged. Holm is 0-2 in her last two fights, yet is moving up to fight for a belt. Inaccurate with her punches and countered effectively, she was out-landed - according to fightmetric.com - by an 87-54 margin. She has no equal, serving as both the reason the UFC was reluctant to create a 145-pound division and the justification for finally caving in and opening the doors.

    Yes, because we still don't know what's going to happen, we're only thinking about what we already have.

    That is the mistake I did a year ago. "The objective of Ronald Koeman will be to get into Europe, because when you become Everton manager you realise very quickly that you are not at a normal football club". Everton captain Phil Jagielka will continue to fight for his place in the starting line-up and will not "moan" about his lack of playing-time. I found out the day before, prepared myself and I'm just so pleased with the result.
