Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) released a sneak peek of the upcoming poster for its UFC 208: "Holm vs De Randamie" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is set to go down inside The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on February 11. 2017.

The event will feature the inaugural women’s Featherweight title fight, as former bantamweight champion Holly Holm will take on kickboxing sensation Germain de Randamie in the headlining bout.

The first-ever women’s 145-pound title fight came to be after Cris Cyborg rejected numerous offers from the promotion to take part in the title fight, citing personal health and emotional issues.

Though it seems Cyborg was doomed from the start, as United States Anti Doping (USADA) notified her of a potential anti-doping violation just last month.

UFC 208 will also see Travis Browne and Derrick Lewis bang it out in Heavyweight action, while Glover Teixeira takes on Jared Cannonier and Dustin Poirier dukes it out vs Jim Miller.
