Holly Holm has ridden perhaps the UFC's most volatile career roller coaster, from the zenith of her upset of Ronda Rousey two years ago to a three-fight losing streak that left her in tears earlier this year.Holm, 36, buckles up again Saturday night when she meets Cris "Cyborg" Justino (18-1), the dominant new featherweight champion, in the main event of UFC 219 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.Holm won those other four, reeling off her one-sided decision over the famed, vastly more experienced Christy Martin in 2005; moving up two weight classes to deliver a first loss to Mary Joe Sanders; avenging a brutal knockout loss to Anne Sophie Mathis by winning a unanimous decision six months later; and beating Rousey.Holm teared up at the post-fight news conference, the moment feeling like a possible ending before she knocked out Bethe Correia in June and landed the title shot at "Cyborg".
