HOLLY HOLM vs GERMAINE DE RANDAMIE fight video
When this was first announced, I felt like it was a no-brainer: Holm all the way. But more thought has given me pause. Holm is 35, has a lot of fight mileage on her, has lost two in a row, and is giving up the edge in physicality. All of these are bad signs. But the flipside is that the Tate loss is one of those weird losses where it’s hard to fully evaluate, and Shevchenko showed us in her last fight that she’s simply an absolute top tier fighter. And despite my hesitations about Holm, I just don’t think de Randamie is at that level. So I’m going with my initial pick, though with far less confidence. Holm by decision.
