Bantamweight Battle! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., May 21, 2022, with a must-watch women’s Bantamweight contenders’ bout between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Holly Holm, taking on No. 5-seeded Ketlen Vieira. In UFC Vegas 55’s co-main event, No. 14-ranked Santiago Ponzinibbio will lock horns with Michel Pereira in an absolute Welterweight firecracker.

Some of the top athletes from this weekend’s fight card came face-to-face at the conclusion of the event, including Alexander Volkov and Tom Aspinall (heavyweight), as well as Paddy Pimblett and Rodrigo Vargas (lightweight). In addition, Dan Hooker took the stage opposite featherweight phenom Arnold Allen.

The main event will determine whether Aspinall is a future title contender or simply a local hero with a lot of hype. As for Pimblett, this marks his second appearance for UFC and remains unranked, but has to put on a spectacular performance to back up all the trash talk we’ve heard from “The Baddy” since joining UFC early last year.

Hooker, meanwhile, is returning to 145 pounds after a hot-and-cold run at lightweight and will look to quell the uprising of the once-beaten English bruiser. Allen is the winner of 10 straight with three finishes.
