"I can't sit up here and act like I wasn't a fan", he said. "Every fight that I've ever really wanted to hurt the guy and have felt that anger, I've made huge mistakes".

On Saturday, February 21, former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm moved up in weight to challenge fellow striker Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural UFC women's featherweight championship in the main event of UFC 208 in Brooklyn.

Anderson Silva revealed that he is still interested to take on Georges St-Pierre. Holm and Rousey are on two-fight losing streaks and Tate is retired, as UFC adds a 145-pound weight class for women.

Cyborg said she could have fought in March but was on doctors orders not to compete before then, so the UFC pushed forward and booked a matchup between Holm and De Randamie. Holm thinks it won't take long for the featherweight division to become as competitive as the bantamweight division, which has seen four different champions in the last 15 months. "She has to deal with whatever's going on with USADA - who knows what's going on with that - and I've got to get through this fight", Holm said during a media conference call recently.
