Elise Reed is the fighter to watch at UFC Vegas 55

Elise Reed recovered from her first loss and looks to continue winning at UFC Vegas 55.

UFC Vegas 55 features the return of former champion Holly Holm as she takes on top contender Keteln Vieira in the women’s bantamweight division. Looking at the map, there are several prospects for fans to keep an eye on. One of them is Elise Reed and she is the fighter to watch out for.

Fighting out of Princeton, New Jersey, Reed makes her third appearance at the Octagon. When she first joined the UFC, she faced Sijara Eubanks on a short-term basis in July 2021. This fight did not go in their favor as Eubanks finished Reed in the first round. She has since bounced back, defeating Cory McKenna by split decision in March.

Reed came to the UFC as a top contender from the Northeast. Even before joining the UFC, she had already competed for major organizations, making her debut at Bellator 231 in October 2019. From Bellator, she then went to the Cage Fury Fighting Championships, where she earned three wins and one championship from 2020-2021 Months before signing with the UFC.

Reed will face Sam Hughes at UFC Vegas 55.

Hughes comes into this fight with some momentum. She last competed just over a month ago, where she defeated Istela Nunes by majority decision. She had previously lost three straight fights in a short-term fight to Tecia Torres since joining the UFC in December 2020.

Before that, her biggest exposure to the fighting community was the 1-1 record she set in the LFA. Hughes brings a professional 6-4 record to this fight.
