UFC 219 has received a championship fight, as the promotion’s announced that featherweight champ Cris “Cyborg” Justino will take on Holly Holm at the December 30th event.

Justino (18-1) secured the vacant 145 belt in July, by stopping Tonya Evinger at UFC 214. The victory was “Cyborg’s” third with the UFC.

Holm (11-3) knocked out Bethe Correia in her last outing, after she failed to win the 145 title in February, when she lost via decision to Germaine de Randamie.

It’s not clear yet whether Justino – Holm will serve as the main event for UFC 219, which will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
