Cris "Cyborg" Justino and Holly Holm headline UFC 219 with the women's featherweight championship on the line. Justino is fresh after knocking out Tonya Evinger at UFC 214 to win the featherweight title. Holm enters the ring as the No. 2 contender in the division after destroying Bethe Correia at UFC Fight Night in June, hoping to win the title this time after failing at UFC 208. Who will walk out of the ring a champion? 👊

It's been a long journey for Justino since her start at EliteXC in 2008. But her persistence paid off as she made it to the UFC, and dominated the competition to take the featherweight title. She is one of the fiercest strikers in the women's division, scoring knockouts in all three fights in the UFC. Holm may have the conditioning to go the distance, but she may not have the chin to survive the hits Justino will be throwing at UFC 219.

Holm is hoping the second time will be the charm. She lost the inaugural featherweight championship fight with Germaine de Randamie via a controversial unanimous decision with de Randamie taking shots at Holm after the bell had rung. Now, with a different opponent in front of her, Holm has a chance to claim a title that many feel should have been awarded to her. Justino may have power, but Holm has the conditioning to outlast her if the fight goes the distance. Expect the 'Preacher's Daughter' to dodge until the later rounds when she can lay the wood on a tired Justino.
