Holly Holm vs. Mayra Bueno Silva predictions for UFC Fight Night: fight schedule, start time, odds, and live stream

On Saturday night, Holly Holm, a former UFC champion and consistent contender, will attempt to defeat Mayra Bueno Silva, a rising contender. In a category lacking a winner, a strong performance counts for a lot. Following Amanda Nunes’ retirement, the main event of UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas will be Holm vs. Bueno Silva.

It’s difficult to comprehend Holm’s (15-6) continued success in combat sports. 2011 saw the Hall of Fame boxer’s transition to mixed martial arts. She rode the wave of momentum all the way to Ronda Rousey’s legendary head-kick knockout in 2015, winning the title of UFC women’s bantamweight.

Since then, things haven’t gone well for Holm, who lost four title fights: two at women’s bantamweight and two at women’s featherweight. Holm hopes to fill the vacuum left by Nunes and constantly seems to be within striking distance of another opportunity.

“Too bad I couldn’t get a rematch with her and now she’s retired,” Holm said to CBS Sports.

“The belt is still my ultimate objective. “Perhaps that can happen if she ever wants to come out of retirement,” Holm stated during the media day on Wednesday. “You do realize that not all fighters retire? Nevertheless, I believe that I am only one victory away from the championship. Even before she retired, I was eager to compete for the title, whether at 145 or 135.

Bueno Silva (10-2-1) injects some life into the rather flat division. She is 3-0 since returning to 135 pounds and has four stoppages in four UFC fights, including three armbars and a kneebar. Bueno Silva, who exudes confidence, is adamant that she deserves to compete for the vacant title instead of rivals Juliana Pena and Raquel Pennington.
Bueno Silva told CBS Sports, “I know no one has victories like mine. “I complete my fights. I have the Night Fight and the Night Performance. These girls are in need. I think if I perform alongside Holly Holm, I’ll be the next.
