Holly Holm signs with the UFC
The UFC has signed former professional boxer and undefeated female bantamweight Holly Holm to a contract, president Dana White announced on Thursday. "I'm excited," White told ESPN.com. "I like the fact we keep bringing in more talent. "With women or men, I never know what to think until I see them fight in the UFC. It's such a different dynamic fighting here. There's no doubt she's talented and she has a lot of followers. People are excited to see her." White did not know when Holm might make her UFC debut. Holm (7-0) made her professional MMA debut in March 2011. As a pro boxer, she won multiple world titles while amassing a career record of 33-2-3 with nine knockouts. Six of her seven wins in MMA have come via knockout, including a fifth-round finish over Juliana Werner for the Legacy FC women's bantamweight title in April. Holm, 32, trains out of Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Slugger showdown: Matt Mitrione vs. Derrick Lewis set for UFC Fight Night 50
UFC Fight Night 50 just got a whole lot more punchy. Heavyweights with proven knockout power will square off at the Sept. 5 card at Foxwoods Casino near Ledyard, Conn., when Matt Mitrione meets Derrick Lewis. FOXSports.com initially reported the bout Wednesday. Mitrione, a 35-year-old former NFL player from Illinois, was scheduled to meet Stefan Struve at UFC 175 last weekend. That matchup was scrapped at the last moment due to Struve's health scare in the locker room at Mandalay Bay. Mitrione was awarded both his win and show money for the cancelled bout, but asked to be placed into another fight as soon as possibly.
