Germaine de Randamie made a statement Saturday night, claiming the UFC female featherweight championship with a decision win over Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 208.

The division was created after success from the bantamweights and strawweights in the promotion.

De Randamie, a former kickboxing and Muay Thai standout, earned her third consecutive win and improved to 7-3 overall. Holm, who held the UFC bantamweight title before dropping it to Miesha Tate, is now 10-3 and has lost her last three.

Former UFC champion Anderson Silva scored his first win since 2012 when he was awarded a decision over Derek Brunson. Silva, making his return to the division for the first time since last February, had not scored an official win since his victory vs. Stephan Bonnar in Brazil.

Middleweight contender Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza put an end to the run of decisions, securing a kimura finish vs. Tim Boetsch in the first round. Souza has won 17 fights via submission and is 9-1 over his last 10, with the lone defeat being via split decision to Yoel Romero.

Glover Teixeira and Dustin Poirier kicked off the main card with decision wins, as Teixeira dominated Jared Cannonier and Poirier pulled out a majority decision vs. Jim Miller.

All five prelim bouts went to the scorecards, as Belal Muhammad, Wilson Reis, Islam Makhachev, Rick Glenn and Ryan LaFlare scored wins.
