Women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm takes on no.2-ranked contender Miesha Tate at UFC 197 this March, and the UFC has released this official breakdown of how each athlete stacks up:

While their weights are identical, Holm will be bringing a significant reach advantage into the fight. She's also the much more experienced and dangerous striker, both on paper and in the Octagon.

However, Tate has spent much more time on the ground during her MMA career. She has six submission victories on her record, while all of Holm's wins have ended via KO/TKO or decision.

UFC 197 takes place on March 5, 2016 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
