Holm (14-6 MMA), the UFC’s former bantamweight champion, was returning to action for the first in over eighteen months this evening. ‘The Preachers Daughter’ entered the contest on a two-fight winning steak, this after scoring decision wins over Raquel Pennington and Irene Aldana in her previous efforts.

Meanwhile, Ketlen Vieira (13-2 MMA) had most recently competed back in November of 2021, where she scored a unanimous decision win over former title holder Miesha Tate. The Brazilian standout had gone 6-2 since joining the UFC ranks in 2016 ahead of tonight’s affair.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 55 main event resulted in a back and forth twenty-five minute affair. Holly Holm found most of her success in the clinch, but even dropped Ketlen Vieira with a side kick during the fight. However, the Brazilian appeared to get off the harder blows throughout the course of the fight and that seemingly swayed two of the judges in attendance to score the bout in her favor.
