The UFC brings us yet another exciting Fight Night event this weekend set to be headlined by a crucial women's bantamweight clash between Holly Holm and Ketlen Vieira. UFC Vegas 55 will take place at the promotion's APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 21.

Holm will be making her much-anticipated return to the octagon almost a year and a half after her victory against Irene Aldana back in October 2020. She is currently ranked No.2 in the division and a win against the Brazilian is likely to land her a title shot next.

Vieira, on the other hand, will be looking to conquer the former champ and establish herself as a legitimate threat to the rest of the top contenders in the division. The co-headliner features an explosive welterweight clash between Santiago Ponzinibbio and Michel Pereira.
