Holm, the No. 3 bantamweight fighter in the MMA Fighting’s Global Rankings, returns to the octagon for the first time since an October 2020 appearance against Irene Aldana, which ended in a unanimous decision win to extend her current streak to two fights. The former champ hopes to get back in the title picture after falling short in a trio of title fights at featherweight and bantamweight.
Vieira, meanwhile, stands at No. 7 in the rankings and is still looking for her first title shot after eight appearances in the UFC. Once a contender-apparent with four straight wins, she was stopped by Aldana and has since gone 2-1 with a recent win over ex-champ Miesha Tate marking her most recent appearance.
