UFC Vegas 55 Live Results: When, Where, and Who?
UFC Vegas 55: Holm vs. Vieira takes place on Saturday, May 21, at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The UFC Vegas 55 fight card is headlined by a women’s bantamweight bout that could set the next contender after newly crowned champion Julianna Pena rematches former titleholder Amanda Nunes following their stint as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter.
UFC Vegas 55 main event: Holly Holm vs. Ketlen Vieira
Holm (14-5) won the bantamweight belt by defeating Ronda Rousey in 2015. She lost it in her first title defense, and has failed to reclaim gold in three subsequent attempts. Holm has, however, gone 4-2 in her last six bouts and continued to maintain her spot near the top of the rankings.
Rocketing to a 10-0 record to start her career, Vieira (12-2) has since gone 2-2 in her last four bouts. Her latest victory was over Miesha Tate, the woman who took the belt from Holm. Adding another former champion to her hit list would put Vieira in prime position to strike once Pena and Nunes play out their rivalry.
UFC Vegas 55 co-main event: Santiago Ponzinibbio vs. Michel Pereira
Ponzinibbio (28-5) and Pereira (27-11, 2NC) are each decade-plus veterans in mixed martial arts with several years in the Octagon. Neither is anywhere near welterweight title contention at the moment, but both are fighting to remain relevant in one of the most stacked divisions in the sport.
