UFC Vegas 55 saw KetleVieira secured another big win of her UFC career when 30-year-old “Fenomeno” claimed a split decision victory over the former UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm in the main event. Vieira is now 7-2 in her UFC career and has made the top 3 UFC bantamweight women. Their next fight should probably be against the winner of the title fight rematch UFC277 between the master Julianna Pena and the challenger Amanda Nunes.
Vieira and Holm went head-to-head in a super close fight, but to the public it seemed like Holm was the one who should win the fight due to her nearly 10-minute clinch control and amount of punches. Only time can tell what’s next for Holm as she’s already 40 years old and will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Famer next month.
