Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm will make her Octagon return this Saturday night.
Holm hasn’t fought in the UFC since her win over Irene Aldana at UFC on ESPN 16 on Oct. 3, 2020. The UFC wanted her to fight Julianna Peña and Norma Dumont last year, but Holm had suffered injuries. She returns at UFC Vegas 55 to face Ketlen Vieira, who is ranked fifth in the bantamweight division.
Vieira’s last win was against Miesha Tate on Nov. 20, 2021. A win for either Holm or Vieira, could put them in the conversation to challenge for the UFC Bantamweight Championship.
