UFC on ESPN 16 live results: Holly Holm vs. Irene Aldana

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC on ESPN 16: Holm vs. Aldana, emanating from the Flash Forum on UFC Fight Island in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

The Octagon remains on Fight Island for the second of five events, this time with a card headlined by a pair of women's bantamweight bouts that could have serious implications on who is next to challenge Amanda Nunes for the UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship.

In the main event, former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm looks to get herself another shot at the title when she battles rising contender Irene Aldana over five rounds. Holm is looking to notch her second straight win after defeating Raquel Pennington in January, while Aldana looks for her third straight win.

In another featured bout, Germaine de Randamie looks to rebound from a title fight loss to Nunes when she takes on Julianna Pena, who is looking to break into the title picture after injuries have plagued her the last couple of years. Also on the main card is a heavyweight battle between Yorgan De Castro and Carlos Felipe, and a bantamweight fight between Kyler Phillips and newcomer Cameron Else.

In the featured preliminary bout, it will be former Interim UFC Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit, who is looking to snap a five-fight losing skid, battling former TUF winner Court McGee.
