Main Card

Holly Holm

Holly Holm (14-6, 7-6 UFC) is a veteran of 13 UFC fights where she has fought the likes of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Germaine de Randamie, Bethe Correia, Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes. The fighter known as “The Preacher’s Daughter” last fought in May 2022 where she took a split decision loss to Ketlen Vieira in a fight that most MMA writers believe the former champion had won. Ten months after, Holm comes back with the desire to resurrect her career and possibly gain another run at the title. In terms of striking, her experience in boxing produced an excellent 56% in defense and a significant strike average of 3.24 per minute. Grappling wise, Holm has a superb takedown defense percentage of 78%.

Yana Santos

Also known as “Foxy,” Yana Santos (14-6-1, 4-3 UFC) has been impressive in the UFC after her one-round technical knockout loss to Cris Cyborg in her debut in March 2018. Following that loss, she strung up four wins in her next five matches. These included victories against Lina Lansberg, Marion Reneau, Juljia Stoliarenko and Ketlen Vieira. However, her string of wins was stopped by Irene Aldana in July 2021 with a one-round technical knockout defeat. More than a year after her last fight, Santos comes back to the UFC for another opportunity to redeem her career and possibly contend in the UFC once more.
