The UFC announced late last year of their commitment to a women’s 145-pound division. Now, we are a week away from crowning the first ever UFC featherweight champion of the world.
Ironically enough, the UFC has decided to introduce the division by placing two bantamweights in the running for championship gold. Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie are set to scrap in Brooklyn, Saturday, February 11th and the winner will forever etch their name in women’s mixed martial arts history as the first ever champion at 145-pounds.
Although the championship will be on the line, the UFC has yet to fully commit to the division as there are no women currently signed.
