Holm, now 40, enters the Octagon on the heels of back-to-back
victories over Raquel

Aldana
. However, she has not set foot inside the cage since she
took a unanimous decision from Aldana in the UFC on ESPN 16 marquee
attraction on Oct. 3, 2020—595 days ago. All five of Holm’s losses
have come to current or former champions: Amanda
Nunes
, Cristiane
Justino
, Germaine
de Randamie
, Valentina
Shevchenko
and Miesha Tate.

Viera has alternated wins and losses in each of her past four
outings after starting her pro career with 10 straight wins. The
30-year-old
Nova Uniao
rep last competed at UFC Fight Night 198, where she
took a five-round unanimous decision from the aforementioned Tate
in the main event.

The rest of the main draw features a women’s strawweight clash
pitting former Jungle
Fight
titleholder Polyana
Viana
against Tabatha
Ricci
and a pair of middleweight tilts, as
Dana White’s Contender Series

Todorovic
