Now, Holm attempts to extend her two-fight win streak and reinsert herself into the title conversation.
Vieira (11-2, fighting out of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil) looks to add another statement victory over a former champion to her resume. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo, she holds impressive wins over Miesha Tate, Sara McMann and Cat Zingano. Vieira now intends to snatch Holm’s spot in the rankings in her second consecutive UFC main event.
Holm, the legendary fighter who’s turning 41 this year is favored to win, but Ketlen Vieira mustn’t be underestimated. The Brazilian fighter is ten years younger than Holm and has an impressive professional record with 12 wins and only two losses.
