But since that epic victory, Holm has dropped her last three and failed in her bid to capture a second world title at UFC 208 when she dropped a unanimous decision to Germaine de Randamie in the five-round main event.

With no featherweight division rankings assembled yet, Holm remained ranked in the bantamweight division and fell two spots down to No. 4. De Randamie remained at No. 10 at 135 pounds despite winning the title.
