2016 was a truly special year for the UFC.  From the sale of the promotion, to the incredible amount of top-notch events.  As we now come up to the fifth month of the year, UFC 211 is the first mega-card of the year.  There are two title bouts and three other matches on the pay per view portion that could certainly be the main event of a UFC on Fox card.

Along with this crazy main event, the Women’s Bantamweight title is on the line. Holly Holm will be making her first title defense against Miesha Tate. It’s been nearly three and a half years since the Bantamweight title fight has not included Ronda Rousey.
