Holly was dominating Tate on the feet but in the last round of the fight, Miesha took her down and took Holly’s back and locked her in the rear-naked choke, and put her unconscious. She went to lose the belt in her very next bout to the current bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes.
The Brazilian Ketlen Vieira joined the UFC in 2016 as a young bantamweight prospect. she came into UFC as an undefeated fighter and kept on increasing her unbeaten streak in the company. She finally met her match when she fought Irene Aldana on December 14, 2019, at UFC 245. The fight was a close matchup but Irene landed a very good left hook and scored a KO victory and Vieira got her first loss on the resume. She then secured a decision win over Sijara Eubanks. She is coming off a decision loss against Yana Kunitskaya at UFC fight night 185.
