Cyborg vs. Holm at UFC 219 off the table due to ‘financial’ issues

On Wednesday,’s Ariel Helwani reported that the match-up has been declared “dead”, and his source is Holly Holm’s agent Lenny Fresquez.

“Holly was anxiously awaiting the Dec. 30 fight with Cyborg, and had been training for it. But we could not come to financial terms for this featherweight title bout in December. We look forward to meeting her under the right circumstances,” Fresquez was quoted saying.

Helwani’s report also stated that Cyborg still wants to be part of the card, but no possible opponent has been named.

UFC 219 is scheduled to take place on December 30th in Las Vegas.
