February 17, 2017 12:49 pm by Russell Ess

The UFC rankings have been updated following UFC 208 where Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie fought for the inaugural UFC women’s featherweight championship in the main event. Randamie had her hand raised after five rounds while many believed Holm should have won, especially after Randamie hit Holm with some of the hardest shots of the fight after the bell sounded the end of the round.
