MMA: Holly and Cyborg, face to face


DETROIT — Albuquerque’s Holly Holm and Brazil’s Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino met face to face on Thursday for the first time since their Dec. 30 fight on UFC 219 in Las Vegas, Nev., was announced.

Holm and Cyborg were invited guests at UFC 218 in Detroit, scheduled for Saturday.

The two fighters were cordial, shaking hands before their face-off, but were not quite friendly. The two became acquainted during the filming of the movie “Fight Valley,” in which they both appeared, in 2015. But recently, Holm became irritated when Cyborg complained, erroneously, that Holm wasn’t being tested for drugs as often as Cyborg was.
