The Ultimate Fighting Championship holds UFC Vegas 55: Holly Holm vs. Ketlen Vieira on May 21, 2022, at the UFC Apex facility in Enterprise, Nevada and it will live stream on ESPN+.
Former women’s boxing champion and UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm will step back into the Octagon after a two year lay off at the age of 40 to prove to the world that age is nothing but a number.
Her opponent on fight night will be Ketlen Viera a tough Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt who is 10 years younger than Holm.
Holm is best known for her upset KO win of Ronda Rousey where she captured UFC gold in Australia against the most famous and dominant female fighter of the time.
She would eventually lose the title and have ups and downs in the sport with many saying she is done and needs to retire, but Holm is out to prove the doubters wrong and she aims to get her hands on the UFC gold again and be one of the few champions to capture the belt in their 40’s.
Viera is looking at this moment as an opportunity to take out another former champion. In her last fight she beat Miesha Tate and wants to add Holm to her resume and hopes a huge win on Saturday gets her closer to a title shot.
