Holly Holm vs Ketlen Vieira Betting Analysis and Prediction

We have UFC Fight Night rapidly approaching on Saturday evening with a bantamweight fight between Holly Holm and Ketlen Vieira being slotted for the main event. Holm is currently 14-5 in her career while Vieira has a 12-2 record entering the cage here. 

Last Fight’s Record

Holm last fought back in October 2020 at UFC on ESPN 16 where she defeated Irene Aldana via unanimous decision. 

Vieira defeated Miesha Tate back in November 2021 via unanimous decision. 

It has been a little bit of time between each of their last fights so this will be an interesting watch heading into this one.  

Holm vs Vieira Betting Analysis

The betting market is going to be heavily favoring the known commodity in Holly Holm. This will make her odds a bit saturated compared to what it typically would be if she never ascended to a mainstream platform. 

Ketlen Vieira has a solid chance of putting up a good fight but it seems the betting odds for UFC is going to be showing a heavy favorite against her. 

Holly Holm Content

Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm is one of the baddest fighters in UFC today and is considered to be the 2nd-ranked fighter in the division with a 14-5 career record. 

She has won her previous two fights and has been doing well throughout her career as she has the capability of ending fights early with her significant strikes. 

Holm has landed 3.16 significant strikes per minute. Her power has been doing incredibly well with eight of her 14 career victories ending with a knockout, but has not won with a knockout of any kind since June 2017. 

It will be interesting to see how she responds after not being able to record a knockout in some time. 

Ketlen Vieira Content

Ketlen “Fenomeno” Vieira is considered to be the fifth-ranked fighter in the division and should be looking to dominate as she currently has a 12-2 record throughout her Mixed Martial Arts career. 

We talked about her last fight earlier but is 2-2 in her previous four fights. Vieira has been struggling to knock out her opponents as only two of her 12 career wins ended with a knockout. 

However, four of her wins have come via submission, with the last submission win coming 5.5 years ago. She should be able to hold her own against one of the best to ever set foot in the octagon.

Updates 

Both fighters have not reported any injuries heading into this fight inside of the octagon so they are ending their training camp at 100 percent healthy. This will help the MMA betting trends get a more clear picture of how the fight will go. 

Holm vs Vieira Betting Preview

Holly Holm is considered to be the heavy favorite entering this fight as she is listed as the -240 favorite heading into the octagon while Ketlen Vierira is expected to be the scrappy underdog here with +195 odds as of this writing.

Holm vs Vieira Betting Prediction

Holly Holm has a decade over Ketlen Vieira in the octagon and should be able to dominate here. 

Typically, following the public is something I would advise against but not in this scenario. These two have a similar opponent in Irene Aldana with Holm winning the fight while Vieria was defeated in her matchup. 

Holm is one of the most decorated fighters in UFC Women’s history and this should be an intriguing fight as neither woman has a knockout victory in some time now. 

All in all, go with Holly Holm to win this fight as it should go the distance but should win via unanimous decision here.
