While it was quite controversial, the main event of UFC Vegas 55 produced a new title challenger at women’s bantamweight. Ketlen Vieira didn’t do a ton to Holly Holm over five rounds, but it was enough to pull off a close split decision and move into the upper echelon at 135. People can debate the judging all the want, but it won’t change the result.
In other news, not much happened. Michel Pereira fought a great fight and took a victory over a game Santiago Ponzibbio. That got him into the rankings. After that? Pretty much nada.
