With the possibility of yet another super fight on the horizon…this time in the women’s divisions, it presents an opening for the UFC to grant another interim crown.

 

A super fight between the UFC’s featherweight and bantamweight champions has been on the minds of many fans and pundits alike. Dating back to around the beginning of 2018 when UFC 219 concluded with featherweight queen Cris Cyborg defending her title successfully against a former 135-pound champion in Holly Holm.

 

The current champion in the division below Cyborg’s is Amanda Nunes and each has stated over the recent months that they do indeed have interest in fighting one another. And things began to get their most serious last night after Cyborg claimed that she had agreed to fight Nunes at UFC 228 in September.

 

Assuming that this fight ends up taking place next for both champions regardless of when and where, Lance Pugmire of the LA Times now reports that Cyborg informed him that the UFC has an interim bantamweight title fight planned between Holm and Ketlen Vieira.

One of the things @criscyborg told me last night is that the UFC would want to do an interim women’s bantamweight title fight between @HollyHolm and @ketlenvieiraufc if Cyborg-Nunes happens …

NO ONE... LITERALLY NO ONE wants to see a female interim championship.  This is a ridiculous way to put Holm on a 2 point fighting winning streak while also giving her a fake belt.  The champion just fought at UFC 224.  She wrassled some Australian dude with tattoos and nobody gives a ****.

Need to stop giving Holly prospects to hoot down. Anderson could of come into the ufc and got a title shot straight away in a dead division but instead they let Holly kill any hype. Megan would of got destroyed by Cyborg im sure but stil i dont get their thinking. Now if she beats Vieira who wins here. Just Holly. They should let her fight someone else at 135 with a big name. Vieira fights Nunes next after the Cyborg fight and then the winner of Holm vs Pena or Cat, I dont know. Interim titles I dont mind if there is some reason for it. It is just a number one contender fight with a belt which they seem to think sells ppv's. Guess they think Nunes will be out for a while after Cyborg takes her soul. Just seems another stupid idea in a dead division.

It's the truth m8. This **** gets more title shots than Roman Reigns.

She deserves it more than RR though.

I also just remembered that UFC 224 Nunez v Pennington did like 85k PPV buys LOL....... The UFC is prob desperate to get rid of nunez or do anything they can to prop up her fights.
