UFC crowned a featherweight champion on Saturday night  at UFC 208.

Germaine de Randamie defeated Holly Holm by majority decision to become the first ever featherweight champion.

GDR won the bout by three points. She won by one on each of the judge’s scorecards.

The new weight class means we might get to see GDR face-off against Cris ‘Cyborg’ for the title within the year.
