Former bantamweight champion Holly Holm and Irene Aldana go head to head in the main event at UFC Fight Night at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. Will Holm live up to her favourite tag or will underdog Aldana be victorious.

Holly Holm (MMA Record 13-5-0)


Holm is the number two ranked fighter in the bantamweight division and get the chance to add to her career record of 13-5 in the main event in Abu Dhabi.

The American has seen plenty of the limelight during her career, but she is at a crucial point of it now. Holm has won only three of her last eights and needs a victory over Aldana.

After a run of five losses in seven fights, Holm toughed it out to earn a decision win over Raquel Pennington at UFC 245 in January. Will that reinvigorate the 38-year-old's career?

That was Holm's fifth decision victory to accompany eight knockouts.

Irena Aldana (MMA Record 12-5-0)


Mexican Aldana has a very similar profile to Holm with 12 victories and five defeats on her CV.

The latest of those defeats came via a split decision as she lost to Pennington in July last year, giving a direct form line to take into this bantamweight contest.

Aldana has won twice since that defeat to Pennington. She earned a decision win over Vanessa Melo in September last year and stopped Ketlen Vieira in the opening round in December 2019.

With 6 knockouts, 3 submissions, and 3 decisions so far in her career, Aldana's has the tactical nous that could trouble Holm. But will she stand up in what is her biggest fight so far.
