Germaine De Randamie will be competing in her first UFC main event this weekend, when she battles former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm for the opportunity to become the first ever UFC Women’s Featherweight Title.
Despite this being her first main event bout, De Randamie says she has the credentials worthy enough to be in the spot.
“A lot of people don’t know my credentials in kickboxing,” De Randamie told MMA Junkie. “I’ve fought the best, the top of the top, the best female fighters in the world – in three weight divisions. I fought a man who had 40 pounds over me, and I knocked him out.”
De Randamie has already earned three wins under the UFC banner and she’s got a better winning percentage than her UFC 208 opponent in UFC bouts. De Randamie is confident heading into her fight this weekend, which is why she also believes that the UFC fans won’t be overlooking her anymore.
“If we talk about credentials, I think I’m right where I want to be,” de Randamie said. “After Saturday, nobody will ever forget me again.”
UFC 208 takes place on Saturday, February 11 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York with Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie headlining.
