Today on the program, we'll go over the latest news related to UFC 208. That means we'll focus on the UFC's decision to create a women's featherweight division, hold a title fight between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie, yet exclude (for now) Cyborg from the title picture. Cyborg, the very woman who was the long-reigning queen of that division, yet was told there'd never be one, so she might as well cut down to a weight she couldn't possibly get to. We'll get into everything that means.

We're also still fresh off the heels of UFC 206, which carried its own measure of interesting results. Max Holloway claimed a belt, Anthony Pettis' career took another hit, Lando Vannata proved to be the genuine article, Donald Cerrone continued his winning ways at welterweight and much more.

Plus the UFC train still isn't slowing down. The second to last event of the year is this Saturday, UFC on FOX 22. Paige VanZant and Michelle Waterson is the headliner, which is a smart choice for a number of reasons, but unusual given the long-standing strategy.

Oh, and Bellator makes it's debut in Ireland on the 16th of the month with Mo Lawal vs. Satoshi Ishii.
