    The UFC holds its final event of 2017 as it sets up the Octagon for UFC 219 at vegas on December 30. The major event will see the dominant Cristiane”Cyborg” Justino place her UFC featherweight title at stake against Holly Holm.
    There’s plenty to appreciate beyond the leading main event with the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Edson Barboza, Carlos Condit and Marc Diakiese on the card.
    Cyborg vs Holly Holm
    We observe Cyborg (-360) because she’s made a profession out of ruining her enemies. Cyborg has ever been among the most competitive fighters in the industry but the former Invicta featherweight champion has learned to exploit that thanks to her time together with Rafael Cordeiro. The real meat to her match is the jab, as Cyborg will throw the jab out before an opponent feels the necessity to fire back then she’ll counter with quick, fight-ending goals.
    Cyborg is a huge fighter who owns huge power for demanding clinch battles — although she’s also technically well served in this area too. Her natural balance and core strength produce takedown attempts typically ineffective.
    Holly Holm (+270) is at her best when she can dictate the space and pace of the struggle. The former pro boxer is excellent at picking away at her opponent in the distance as a result of her clean, smooth footwork. At this distance,”The Preacher’s Daughter” will throw a steady diet of lefts and then wait for her opportunity to counter. Though boxing was her first sport, Holm has done a great job adding kicks to her repertoire with the notorious Jackson-Wink oblique kick playing an important role. When a fight gets dirty or she attempts to move forward, the former bantamweight champion is a great deal more hittable.
    In terms of grappling, Holm is strong in the clinch and possesses great takedown defense. However, if an opponent can get Holm to the mat, she does not offer much.
    Holm is the stiffest challenge Cyborg has confronted since Gina Carano eight decades ago. Holm has the capacity to potentially frustrate Cyborg with her movement and space management. Finally, Cyborg’s aggressive style will neutralize these advantages.
