UFC 208 takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and features
a clash between Holly Holm
de Randamie for the inaugural women’s featherweight crown. The
UFC also confirmed a previously reported heavyweight tilt between
Lewis and Travis
Browne for the Feb. 11 event.
A former 205-pound title challenger, Teixeira had a three-fight
winning streak snapped when he suffered a first-round knockout loss
Johnson at UFC 202. Cannonier, meanwhile, looked sharp in his
light heavyweight debut, as he outpointed Ion
Cutelaba at “The Ultimate Fighter 24” finale on Dec. 3.
Poirier won his first four bouts upon moving to lightweight but saw
his winning streak come to an end in a first-round knockout loss to
Johnson at UFC Fight Night 94 on Sept. 17. The long-tenured
Miller has earned successive triumphs over Thiago
Alves, Joe Lauzon and
Gomi in his last three outings.
