UFC Fight Night is taking place this weekend at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, March 25 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a six-bout main card highlighted by a bantamweight fight between No. 3 Marlon Vera and No. 5 Cory Sandhagen. Also notable on the main card is a women’s bantamweight fight between No. 3 Holly Holm and No. 6 Yana Santos.

Holm (14-6) is a seasoned veteran, who enters this matchup fresh off a tough split-decision loss to Ketlen Veira last May. The 41-year-old has been a staple in the women’s bantamweight division and is yet again hunting for an elusive championship title shot. Holm recently signed a new six-fight deal with the UFC and looks to kick off that signing with a win over Santos.

Santos (14-6) makes her return to the octagon after a two-year hiatus, welcoming her second child. She comes back to a tough matchup, but the two have a solid familiarity, sparring multiple times in the past. In her last bout, she was stunned and defeated via first-round TKO by Irene Aldana in July 2021. She’ll look to get back on track and halt Holm’s bid for a title shot.
