UFC Fight Night 206: Holly Holm takes on Ketlen Vieira

Fresh off a decision win over former champion Miesha Tate, Ketlen Vieira now has her sights set on another former champion, Holly Holm.

Vieira (12-2-0), 30, is currently ranked No. 6 in the bantamweight division and recorded the biggest win in her career thus far with the win over Tate in her last fight. She is hoping to build some momentum and leapfrog into the top five with a victory over Holm.

Meanwhile, Holm (14-5-0), 40, remains No. 2 in the division despite being hobbled with various ailments and injuries since May 2021. Her last contest was a decision win over Irene Aldana in October 2020. She was supposed to meet Norma Dumont in October 2021 but a knee injury forced her removal from the card and replacement with Aspen Ladd. However, in a recent Instagram post her knee appears to have recovered somewhat.
