"I don't want to overlook that and if I was thinking about a fight with Cyborg, I would be overlooking that".
A win at UFC 208 would make Holm the first ever two division champion in UFC history and that would go a long way towards her goal to move past the win over Rousey as she moves forward in her career.
"She might think that and say she's retired, but then in two years, she might think, 'I've had enough of this other life".
De Randamie is a blast to watch, seems like a lovely human being, and hopefully will be more visible with a title.
"Ronda might be done, but she really accomplished a lot". Last December, she was flagged for a potential violation of the UFC's drug-testing policy, administered by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, and is now disputing it.
De Randamie of course will be entering into the fight on a 2-fight win streak that has seen her pick up back to back TKO wins in her last two fights.
We have now found footage of de Randamie in the fight with a male opponent who clearly has quite the size advantage over "Iron Lady".
Back in the Netherlands, kickboxing is king - or queen - and de Randamie's career in the sport made her a superstar. Coming off a knockout, Ronda or anybody else - I'm not saying it's just her, it's just fighters - you come off from a knockout.

The couple have been thinking about starting a family for a while now. "And nothing will be ideal , I'm sure". On Thursday, the model took to Instagram to share a photo of herself showing off her baby bump in a bikini.
In trademark style, Holm refused to talk badly of de Randamie when pressed on her ability ahead of the bout.
Plus, the longer she waits, the more pressure she adds on herself, but it could be time to prepare for a women's bantamweight division without the woman who put the female athletes on the map. It is pressure. I want to use it as good motivation. On one hand, in the cage, it's a great fight: The most decorated boxer in UFC history against one of a handful of the most decorated kickboxers.
Hollywood and WWE were strongly rumoured, but as we know, she took one year out from the sport and attempted to recapture her bantamweight championship against Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. "I'm fighting Holly Holm on Saturday, not Cris Cyborg, and people should respect that". De Randamie's issues in mixed martial arts have only come from fighters who could take her down, at which point she's finished or goes through the grinder for three rounds.
"That was the first takedown I've ever gone for in a fight, and I can guarantee that the Megan Anderson of today would steamroll Cindy Dandois, but I've got my eyes firmly on the UFC".
Zeroing on the fight, the analyst said for her experience and noted fight shape, Ms. Holm could wind up the victor.
"I was planning on staying for two weeks to train afterwards and after a week they said if I wanted to, I could live and train there full-time and I just said OK. I just need to perform it".
It would be easy to say that the taste of the spotlight distracted Holm from what was really important to her career, but she refuses to make that excuse or to take away the victories from fighters like Shevchenko or Miesha Tate, who beat her fair and square on the night of the fight. "Whatever, right now it's Holly vs.me". "I wouldn't have gotten the call if the other guys weren't afraid of him".
