Holm and Cyborg are a done deal for UFC 219

KRQE NM Sports Feed - November 16, 2017 - 7:16pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The fight is officially on. Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm will meet Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg as part of UFC 219 December 30.

For Holm, it will be her first fight since knocking out Bethe Correia back in June. Two years ago, Holm shocked the MMA world when she knocked out then bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in Australia. Holm would later lose her bantamweight title to Meisha Tate.

Holm fought for the first ever UFC title in the featherweight division when she met Germaine de Randamie in February of 2017. The fight was controversial because de Randamie punched Holm in the face two different times after the bell. De Randamie won the fight by decision.

Holm appealed the decision, but had her appeal denied. De Randamie was later stripped off the title due to her unwillingness to fight Cyborg. Cyborg would later fight for the vacant featherweight title and win in a fight against Tanya Evinger in July of 2017. Cyborg is 17-1 in the octagon and will defend her title against an 11-3 Holm. The fight at the T-Mobile Arena will likely be the main event of the pay per view card.

Lobos senior guard Laneah Bryan had 13 points while Mountain West Preseason Player of the Year Cherise Beynon scored 11 points with 5 assists. Emily Lines had 10 points for the Lobos.

Lobos coach Paul Weir isn’t sure what to expect in his return to NMSU

KRQE NM Sports Feed - November 15, 2017 - 7:58pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The last time Paul Weir was coaching college basketball in Las Cruces, he was wearing the crimson and white of the New Mexico State Aggies. Friday, the former Aggies coach will return to the place he once called home. The new wrinkle is that he will be wearing the cherry and silver, leading the Aggies hated rival, the University of New Mexico Lobos.

Weir was lured with a higher profile and bigger salary offered by the Lobos back in March. That was after leading the Aggies to 28 wins and trip to the NCAA Tournament last season. The move put another log on the rivalry fire and left some NMSU fans unhappy.

Weir said he hasn’t thought about how fans will react to him Friday, but he acknowledges it could be intense.

“I think when Craig Neal was in there he got booed,” said Weir. “When Steve Alford was in there he got booed. Bliss and anybody else. It’s an amazing rivalry to be a part of. I’m excited to be a part of the game. Are my boos going to be more intense than maybe some in the past? Given what’s happened possibly so, but that’s what’s beautiful about this rivalry.”

Weir was the head coach of the Aggies for only one season after spending nine years prior to the program. He has received mixed messages from Aggies fans leading up to the game. His wife, Alma, is from Las Cruces and is an NMSU grad.

“My wife is still deciding on whether to go or not…uh…I think she’s a little nervous about some certain things, but I really hope it’s a fun game,” said Weir. “I hope that the subtitle doesn’t become me. I hope it remains on the student-athletes.”

The Lobos and Aggies have a 7 p.m. tip-off time in Las Cruces Friday. The game will be broadcast on Aggievision.
