Watch Holly Holm, Anderson Silva fights online, TV listings and time

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.

Dozens join Plattsburgh Planned Parenthood protest
The event was pretty civil, which was a concern for both sides due to the passion felt by people on both sides of the issue. USA Today reported on January 17 that Planned Parenthood received $553.7 million in government funding in 2014.

PS4 Pro 'Boost Mode' Will Enhance Some Older Games
The PlayStation 4 Pro , in its initial launch, was priced $400 and is a hundred bucks more expensive than the standard PS4. Plenty of PS4 games are still coming out now that don't take advantage of the Pro's beefed up power.

$173000 a second: Why Super Bowl ads go beyond Sunday night's game
The film is playing at more than a dozen Boston-area theaters, 10 of which have showings that start between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. And even with the rise of cord cutting, many people still plan to watch the Super Bowl the old-fashioned way - on TV.

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.
