Holly Holm’s hopes of regaining the UFC bantamweight title became much tougher following this past Saturday’s result against Ketlen Vieira.
At UFC Fight Night 206, the former champ lost a close split decision to Vieira that sparked multiple debates about MMA judging. Her clinch-heavy approach didn’t win over two judges as Vieira produced her biggest moments in the striking department.
Holm, 40, entered the contest hoping to continue on the path back towards the title she once held. While that road isn’t completely blocked, it has now become much harder to navigate. Since her world-famous knockout of Ronda Rousey to become champion, Holm has gone 4-6 inside the octagon.
