On Saturday night, the UFC closes out the month of February with a jam packed UFC 184 card live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Set to appear in headline the card is a UFC women’s bantamweight title fight between reining champion Ronda Rousey and the ever durable Cat Zingano.

Rousey (10-0), a former Olympic medalist in Judo, is coming off a 16 second knockout over Alexis Davis at UFC 175 in July. Prior to this win, the woman known as ‘Rowdy’ walked away with a TKO victory over fellow Olympian turned mixed martial artist Sara McMann a little over a minute into their title fight at UFC 170 in February.

Zingano (9-0) was last seen earning a violent TKO victory over Amanda Nunes at UFC 178 last month. This marked her second straight third-round stoppage victory, with her previous coming against former title contender Miesha Tate in their number one contenders bout at the TUF 17 Finale in April 2013. The woman known as ‘Alpha’ will enter this bout with eight career stoppage victories, with five ending by way of knockout.

Staying the women’s 135-pound divions, former boxing superstar Holy will finally make her long awaited debut against Raquel Pennington in the night’s co-main event. The two were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 181 in December before Holm was forced to pull out due to injury.

Pennington (5-4), a semifinalist on TUF 18, would go to defeat Holm’s replacement Ashlee Evans-Smith by first round submission. Prior to this win, ‘Rocky’ suffered a close split decision loss to Jéssica Andrade at UFC 171 in March. She will enter this bout with three career stoppage wins and a UFC record of 2-1.

Holm (7-0), a former boxing world champion who amassed a record of 33-2-3, has yet to taste defeat since making the switch to mixed martial arts in 2011. Since then she has laid waste to almost every single opponent thrown her way, securing violent knockouts in several different promotions. In her most recent outing, she earned the inaugural Legacy FC Women’s Bantamweight Championship with a violent headkick knockout over Juliana Werner in the main event of Legacy FC 30 in A
