Summary:

At UFC Fight Night 206, the women's fight Holm vs Vieira will take place on the night of May 21-22. Holly Holm is aiming for the third win in a row. The 40-year-old bantamweight wants to set the course for the next title fight. However, this fight will be a real endurance test: The Brazilian has only lost two MMA fights in her current career - will it stay that way?

Details:

Classic standing fighter with little grappling

Holly Holm will have her 20th pro fight in MMA this weekend against Ketlen Vieira.

So far, The Preachers Daughter is 14-5 after 19 MMA fights, including the legendary fight against Ronda Rousey that Holm mastered seven years ago.

In her current career, Holm has only lost bouts to the likes of Nunes, Shevchenko, Cyborg, de Randamie and Tate. In the meantime, Holm was active in the UFC featherweight division, meanwhile the former UFC champion is finishing her bantamweight career.

Second in the UFC bantamweight rankings, another win in the weight class puts the American within reach of another title shot.

As a stand-up fighter, the upcoming hurdle against Vieira comes in handy...

Ketlen Vieira showed a defiant reaction after the surprising defeat against Yana Kunitskaya and successfully mastered the endurance test against Miesha Tate six months ago. As expected, the victory was only booked after a point decision.

The Brazilian had to go the full distance for the third time in a row.

The last time a fight by Ketlen Vieira ended prematurely was in December 2019. At that time there was a bitter KO defeat for "Fenomeno" Vieira against the Mexican Irene Aldana.

After 14 professional fights, the Brazilian currently has a record of 12-2. Vieira got six of her twelve wins by points decision. However, six other fights ended prematurely – two after a knockout and four after a submission.

Can Vieira deflect a flurry of blows from Holm?

The first round of the upcoming main event of UFC Fight Night 206 will be trend-setting for Ketlen Vieira. The Brazilian still has to brace herself for a flurry of blows from Holm and demonstrate her defensive skills from a standing position.

Compared to the hurdles Vieira has overcome in her eight-fight UFC career so far, the fight against Holm is arguably the biggest UFC fight of "Fenomeno's" career to date.

After all, none of the last opponents had anything like the caliber of a stand-up fighter like Holm.

It is therefore by no means surprising that in Holm vs Vieira, according to betting odds, the Brazilian is classified as a comparatively clear outsider...

Holm vs Vieira: Prediction & Betting Odds

Before her long break from fighting, Holm had won back-to-back bantamweight bouts to move up to second in her weight class.

With another win, Holm can set the course for a potential title fight with Julianna Pena.

“The Preachers Daughter” shouldn't have too much trouble against Ketlen Vieira. After all, the Brazilian does not belong to the elite of the weight class and has had a manageable CV so far.

One of the few tough hurdles Vieira overcame in her ongoing UFC career was the recent fight against Miesha Tate. The Brazilian prevailed after a points decision against the ranking tenth in the UFC bantamweight division.


Facts about Holm vs Vieira - UFC tip

  • Holly Holm is back at UFC Fight Night 206 after a long injury layoff.
  • Holm won the last two UFC bantamweight fights.
  • Ketlen Vieira has lost just two of her 14 professional MMA fights.

 

This time I tend to rule out a win for Vieira.
