UFC Fight Night 206: Holm vs Vieira 05/21/2022 Odds
Holly Holm has a very creative ring name “The Preacher’s Daughter” and this fighter’s hometown is in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the United States. She gets to represent the Jackson-Wink MMA. Holm is a 40-year-old fighter who stands at five-foot-eight. She is more classified as a featherweight and her professional record is 14-5. Eight of her wins came from knockouts while the rest were decisions. Known as the fighter who first conquered Ronda Rousey, her career after that was not the way she expected. She won only four of her nine bouts but she is coming in on a two-fight winning streak by prevailing against Raquel Pennington and Irene Aldana.
Ketlen Vieira is a 30-year-old fighter and she came all the way from Manaus, Amazonas in Brazil to be in this bout. She has been sharpening her fighting skills at the Nova Uniao MMA stable. Vieira is known as the “Fenomeno” whenever she steps inside the MMA cage and this bantamweight has only lost twice in 14 professional bouts. Half of her wins came from decisions while also owning four submission victories. After losing to Yana Kuniskaya in UFC Fight Night 185, Vieira made her way back inside the octagon in November 2021 to go up against veteran fighter Miesha Tate. That match went to a full five rounds and Vieira earned the unanimous decision win.
