Holly Holm vs. Mayra Bueno Silva: A Clash for the Bantamweight Crown

Get ready for a thrilling clash between Holly Holm and Mayra Bueno Silva in the women’s bantamweight division. Don’t miss out on the action at UFC Vegas 77!

The UFC is set to deliver another thrilling night of fights at the APEX facility in Las Vegas this Saturday. Headlining the event is a highly anticipated women’s bantamweight bout between Holly Holm and Mayra Bueno Silva. Both fighters are eager to stake their claim for a shot at the division’s vacant title.

Mayra Bueno Silva has been on an impressive winning streak, securing three-straight victories with her exceptional submission skills. Since moving up from flyweight last year, she has proven herself to be a formidable force in the bantamweight division. However, she faces a tough challenge in the form of former bantamweight queen, Holly Holm.

Holm, known for her remarkable striking abilities, aims to build on her recent win and halt Bueno Silva’s momentum. With her experience and skill set, she poses a significant threat to the rising Brazilian contender.

In the co-main event, #14-ranked welterweight Jack Della Maddalena takes on UFC debutant Bassil Hafez. This matchup was a late addition to the card after Della Maddalena’s previous opponents withdrew from the fight at UFC 290. Both fighters are eager to make a statement and climb the rankings in the welterweight division.

The rest of the main card may not feature big names or ranked talent, but it promises exciting matchups. Norma Dumont squares off against Chelsea Chandler in a highly anticipated clash, while Terrance McKinney meets Nazim Sadykhov in what is expected to be a thrilling lightweight scrap.

The prelims showcase the promotional debuts of unbeaten prospects Azat Maskum and Viktoriya Dudakova. These fighters, along with other talented individuals, are looking to make a lasting impression in the UFC.

Unfortunately, the card did experience a setback during fight week, as the heavyweight matchup between Walt Harris and Josh Parisian was canceled due to a potential USADA violation by Harris. However, the remaining fights are sure to deliver non-stop action.

Don’t miss out on UFC Vegas 77, which will be broadcasted on ESPN and ESPN+. The prelims kick off at 7:00 p.m. ET, followed by the main card at 10:00 p.m. ET. Stay tuned to this page for live results and highlights from the event!
