Unsurprisingly, it is Cyborg who is the favourite, but Holm has shocked the world before, when she beat Ronda Rousey for the bantamweight title in 2015, so she will be confident of doing it again.

The highlight of the undercard sees terrifying Russian lightweight Khabib Nurmagamedov looking to continue his unbeaten record against solid contender Edson Barboza.
