The news was first announced today by Chicago Tribune and has not yet officially been announced by the UFC.

Holly Holm has lost four of her last five bouts, including her last one against Cris Cyborg at UFC 219.Despite losing, the former women’s bantamweight champion gave Cyborg (20-1) all she could handle and Holm was undoubtedly Cyborg’s toughest fight, with the fight being decided with a unanimous decision. At 36, “The Preacher’s Daughter” recently said she has no intent on retiring anytime soon. She wants to make another run at the title, and that begins at UFC 225. Anderson has been on the sidelines since winning the Invicta FC title in January 2017. She was supposed to meet now UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg for the title but pulled out of the bout citing personal problems.

Anderson is currently riding a four-fight winning streak into UFC 215 all under the Invicta FC banner. Three of those wins led to a featherweight title shot against Charmaine Tweet at Invicta FC 21 which Anderson won via second-round TKO.

With this announcement by Chicago Tribunes, UFC 225 now looks like this:

Robert Whittaker (c) vs. Yoel Romero for the UFC middleweight title
Welterweight Rafael dos Anjos vs. Colby Covington for the interim UFC welterweight title
Alistair Overeem vs. Curtis Blaydes
Joseph Benavidez vs. Sergio Pettis
Cláudia Gadelha vs. Carla Esparza
Andrei Arlovski vs. Tai Tuivasa
Rashad Evans vs. Anthony Smith
Rashad Coulter vs. Allen Crowder
Mike Santiago vs. Dan Ige
CM Punk vs. Mike Jackson
Ricardo Lamas vs. Mirsad Bektić
