ICYMI: UFC 208: Holm VS. De Randamie - Final Results


Main event: Holly Holm vs. Germaine de Randamie

Germaine de Randamie landed more and thwarted Holly Holm’s wrestling advances to secure the inaugural UFC women’s featherweight title by unanimous decision, 48-47, 48-47, 48-47. De Randamie landed at a 76 percent clip and out-struck Holm, 144-122 overall and 80-77 in significant strikes. Holm attempted nine takedowns in the fight and wasn’t able to finish a single one. GDR tagged Holm at the end of the second round and it appeared to come after the horn. Holm staggered on her way back to her corner and looked to clinch whenever the chance presented itself after that. De Randamie now stands to face the longtime uncrowned featherweight queen Cris Cyborg, who attended UFC 208 in Brooklyn.

Germaine de Randamie: “It was a close fight. She caught me in the third round. It was a good kick but you won’t knock me out that way and I kept coming. She didn’t want to fight me but I am a warrior and I came here to fight. It was an accident to hit her after the bell, it was never intentional. It was just the heat of the moment. I am not that kind of fighter. Holly is a tremendous champion and I truly respect her but I am a brawler and I love to fight. I want to fight everybody and I will fight anybody so we will see who is next. I want to thank my team and the fans in Brooklyn, who have been amazing to me. Thank you very much.”

Co-main: Anderson Silva defeated Derek Brunson

In a stunning unanimous decision announcement, the legendary Anderson Silva defeated Derek Brunson, 29-28, 29-28, 30-27. Silva was out-struck in the fight, 118-54 overall and 54-43 in significant strikes, unofficially. Brunson landed two of 11 takedowns and controlled Silva for 3:52, but was possibly punished for the nine missed chances. Silva showcased phenomenal takedown defense in the third round, using his Muay Thai clinch to land a nice knee to the head on the exit by Brunson. An emotional Silva spoke about how happy he is that he is still able to compete for love of the game just two months shy of his 42nd birthday.

Anderson Silva: “I am so happy. I am so happy because I worked very hard for this fight. I wanted to give my best for my fans and for New York. New York is a very special place to me. It makes me feel like I’m at home. I’m just so happy. I am sorry for being so emotional but it is just because I am happy to be here. Next, I just want to go home and look at what will be the next challenge for me. I am very thankful to New York and to my fans.”

Derek Brunson: “Everyone is telling me that I won. I feel terrible. It’s not Anderson’s fault or the UFC’s fault. I took this fight on short notice and, to have this happen, is just crazy to me. I take this seriously. This is my job. I put everything into this and I got robbed. It sucks.”

Jacare Souza defeated Tim Boetsch

Jacare Souza made quick work of Tim Boetsch, who tried and failed to keep the fight standing early in the first round. Jacare mounted Boetsch after a textbook double leg takedown and started to land some punches. When Boetsch looked to scramble, and wiggle out, Jacare grabbed ahold of his arm and cranked it with a kimura lock to earn the submission win at 3:41 of the first round. Jacare improves to 7-1 in the UFC and puts himself directly in the middle of the title picture at 185 pounds.

Jacare Souza: “My plan was to come out strong and finish him early. I am the best in the world and I wanted to make a statement. Of course, I am the most deserving of the title shot in my opinion but I will wait now. I have nothing left to say about Romero or Bisping other than I will be waiting for the winner and I will be champion.”

Glover Teixeira defeated Jared Cannonier

Glover Teixeira put on a textbook Glover performance, landing takedown after takedown against Jared Cannonier to capture the unanimous decision win, 30-26, 30-26, 30-26.

Glover Teixeira: “I was a little surprised by the way he moved. He had a fast jab but the plan was to take him down and beat him on the ground. I am ready to go when the UFC has another opponent in mind, maybe a Top 5 or Top 10 contender next time. However, the main thing is to be ready and see what comes my way. You never hope for injuries but, in this game, it is important to always stay ready. So, if a title opportunity presents itself, I will be ready! I am here to fight the top athletes in the world.”

Dustin Poirier defeated Jim Miller

Dustin Poirier and Jim Miller had 13 performance bonuses between them before they collided at UFC 208. And they showed off why in this one, engaging in furious exchanges and emptying the gas tanks over the course of 15 minutes. Poirier took a majority decision (28-28, 30-27, 29-28) after outclassing Miller on the feet and in the grappling exchanges. Poirier landed a staggering 93 sinificant strikes and out-struck Miller, 112-92 overall. Poirier landed three takedowns to just one for Miller and showed his depth as a striker throughout the fight. Poirier was landing big shots and using his head movement to set up his counters. In the third, when Miller started to gain some momentum with a few brutal leg kicks, Poirier pulled a veteran move using a straight left hand to disguise a takedown when he caught a Miller leg kick to finish off the fight. Poirier improves to 5-1 since moving up to lightweight.
