Holly Holm will fight against Ketlen Vieira in last event of May at UFC Fight Night on Saturday. Where to watch and when.

Holly Holm looks to continue her path to getting a shot at becoming a two-time women’s bantamweight champion on Saturday as she takes on Ketlen Vieira from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

A key women’s bantamweight clash is the main event at UFC Fight Night on Saturday on May 22.

After stunning the sports world with her second-round knockout of Ronda Rousey to win the 135-pound title at UFC 193, Holm’s struggled to get back to that historic point in time, going 4-5. But she’s gotten herself back on track and won back-to-fights over Raquel Pennington and Irene Aldana, respectively.

Standing in Holm’s way is Vieira. The Brazilian began her career 10-0, but has been on uneven footing as of late, going 2-2 in her last four. But her most recent outing was her biggest win to date, beating former bantamweight titlist and one of Women’s MMA biggest names, Miesha Tate.

The winner aligns themselves in position to challenge the winner of the Julianna Pena-Amanda Nunes rematch that will occur sometime in the summer.
