De Randamie will share the mat with former bantamweight champ Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 208 on Saturday and the newest weight class in the UFC will have a new champion come Sunday morning. Silva, one of the best fighters in the history of the sport, has lost four of his last five, and hasn't won since he beat Stephan Bonnar via TKO at UFC 153 in October 2012.

"I broke my legs some years ago and my family talked to me and said, 'Dad - stop; you don't need to prove nothing more, ' but I talked to my family and say, 'Yes, I don't need to prove nothing more for anybody, but I need to prove for myself because this is my life.' (Fighting) is my life; this is my air". I've changed a little bit of my focus. But, when I'm outside, I'm a family man. He agreed to the fight with just a few days notice and the result was a unanimous decision loss. "I just bring my heart and do my best".

Cannonier is still making a name for himself and this is a big step up in competition, but he's not a fighter Teixeira can afford to take lightly, particularly at striking range. If you're a casual fan, you should get on YouTube and see this woman throw hands.

Anderson's mega fight days are largely behind him, and the fighter that once pined for a fight with boxer Roy Jones Jr. can only smile now when he hears the numbers thrown around for a proposed McGregor-Floyd Mayweather Jr. bout. But even if that's true, it would be perfectly reasonable given his age.

UFC 208 is unlikely to break any box office records but there's certainly enough on the card to justify a late night.

De Randamie has a patient, but powerful kickboxing style which should bode well for her against the counter attacking style of Holly Holm. I want them to remember everything after. Everyone else is looking at the losses, but how did he lose?

Below is the full fight card for Saturday's event.

What to Know About Recent Immigration Raids in US Cities
Castro said the roundups were part of Operation Cross Check - a series of large-scale raids that began in 2011 under Barack Obama. ICE called the reports of massive round-ups "false, risky and irresponsible", the New York Times reported.

Comet, Snow Moon, And Eclipse Collide On Friday Night
While that full moon may be big, bright and handsome , it'll be covered in darkness early in the evening, but only temporarily. A lunar eclipse can only happen at full moon , but more often than not the full moon swings above or below the Earth's shadow.

Snowstorm Niko sweeps through Times Square in New York City
Some areas of the Northeast have been enjoying a mostly snow-free winter, but that's about to change. The Philadelphia International Airport also began cancelling flights mid-day Wednesday.

Silva wouldn't count out the MMA Irishman; he just might not bet on him. His disclosed payout of $600,000 to fight Cormier at UFC 200 over the summer is nearly certainly one of the top reasons, but another is a still-burning passion to test his skills against the best fighters on the planet.

Silva also stated that retirement is something he could have done in the past.

"I'm in a place I've never been in my career, not in boxing or MMA, and I know that I'm coming in and there's extra nerves that I have that I put on myself", she said. He was unsure fighting would be financially lucrative enough to live in the United States and support his five children.

Middleweights Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza and Tim Boestch make for an intriguing matchup. Silva is now 40 years old, and though he is one of the craftiest fighters out there, there is no doubt that some of his speed and precision has faded.

Odds: Most bettors slate Holm as roughly a 7/2 underdog. But she wants to be known for more than that. "We get in the cage and we say, 'I'm going to do well".

And with that, the sun may be setting on women's MMA - not its existence, but its prominence within the sport.

She delivered an unbelievable performance against Rousey in 2015 but it was the only fight she thoroughly dominated sans the Marion Reneau bout which was nothing to really write at home about.
