The pay-per-view event finally received a title fight just moments ago as the promotion just announced that Cris Cyborg will be defending her women's featherweight title against former bantamweight title holder Holly Holm.

Whether it eventually serves as the main event remains to be determined.

She is a formidable opponent for Cyborg and one who has fought at 145 pounds.

A long-rumoured bout against Holly Holm, which was held up due to a contract impasse between Cyborg and the UFC, is set to take place at UFC 219 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, 30 December. However, de Randamie was later stripped of the belt for her refusal to defend it against Cyborg, who was victorious via third-round TKO against Tonya Evinger in July when the vacant title was up for grabs.

With former champion Ronda Rousey still inactive, and possibly retired, Justino-Holm is easily the biggest fight to make in women's mixed martial arts. Sixteen of her 18 career wins have come via knockout, including nine inside the first round.

Holm's management referred to the prospect of their fighter meeting Cris Cyborg at UFC as "dead" last week. De Randamie won the fight by decision.

UFC 219 officially has a title bout.

Holm fought for the first ever UFC title in the featherweight division when she met Germaine de Randamie in February of 2017.

Fighting out of JacksonWink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Holm is coming off a third-round knockout over Bethe Correia in June.
