Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is headed back to “The Empire State,” as the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion gears up for the UFC 208 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sat., Feb. 11, 2017 inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Tasked with carrying the five-round main event are Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie, as they collide for the women’s inaugural featherweight championship. That’s a fight that was expected to feature Cris Cyborg; however, the Brazilian ran into trouble with United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and remains on the sidelines.
In the UFC 208 co-headliner, former middleweight champion Anderson Silva tries to get back into the win column against rugged 185-pound contender Derek Brunson. The soon to be 42-year-old “Spider” has not tasted victory since a 2012 drubbing of Stephan Bonnar in his native Brazil.
