Holly Holm vs. Bueno Silva

In the main event, Holly Holm looks to solidify her position at the top of the division as she takes on the streaking Mayra Bueno Silva. Holm, known as “The Preacher’s Daughter,” has been a consistent force in the bantamweight division since her debut in the UFC. After capturing the bantamweight title in a dramatic fashion, Holm has remained a tough challenge for anyone hoping to establish themselves as a legitimate title threat. While she has not been able to regain the belt, Holm remains a respected veteran and a formidable opponent for any contender.

Mayra Bueno Silva, on the other hand, has been making waves in the 135-pound division with three consecutive victories and two impressive submission finishes. Silva has quickly established herself as a rising star and will be looking to make a major statement in her first UFC main event. This bout presents a significant opportunity for Silva to prove herself against a well-established name in the division and potentially earn a shot at the title in the future.

The co-main event features an exciting middleweight clash between Albert Duraev and Junyong Park. Duraev, a member of the Dana White’s Contender Series Class of ’21, has had a mixed run in the UFC but has shown flashes of brilliance. With an impressive overall record and a win over Chidi Njokuani in his last outing, Duraev aims to build a winning streak and establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in the middleweight division.

Park, hailing from South Korea, has quietly put together an impressive run in the UFC with three consecutive victories and a 6-1 record in his last seven fights. Despite a thrilling back-and-forth battle against Gregory Rodrigues resulting in his only loss, Park has collected consecutive submission wins and is starting to gain recognition as a potential contender in the middleweight division. This matchup is crucial for both fighters as they look to climb the rankings and face more formidable opponents in the near future.

The heavyweight division will be on display as Walt Harris returns to action after a two-year hiatus to face Josh Parisian. Harris, also known as “The Big Ticket,” has faced adversity both inside and outside the Octagon but has shown immense resilience. Prior to his break, Harris seemed poised to make a run in the division before a tragic family incident derailed his career. Now, the 40-year-old heavyweight looks to make a triumphant return and regain the momentum he had prior to his absence.

Parisian, a powerful fighter from West Virginia, has alternated results since his appearance on Season 4 of the Contender Series. Although he has shown flashes of power and potential, Parisian has struggled to string together consistent results. This matchup provides a critical opportunity for both fighters to make a statement and reestablish themselves in the highly competitive heavyweight division.

The main card also features a featherweight clash between Norma Dumont and Chelsea Chandler. Dumont, coming off a victory over Karol Rosa, looks to continue her ascent in the division. With a solid track record and wins in both the bantamweight and featherweight divisions, Dumont aims to establish herself as a tough contender in whichever weight class she competes in.

Chandler, a member of the Nick Diaz Army, made a strong UFC debut with a first-round technical knockout victory over Julija Stoliarenko. With a five-fight winning streak and an impressive performance in her first outing, Chandler carries the confidence and swagger of her Stockton crew. Both fighters are ranked at bantamweight and a victory here could potentially propel them closer to the top of the division.

Other main card fights include Ottman Azaitar vs. Francisco Prado in a lightweight matchup, Nazim Sadykhov vs. Terrance McKinney in a lightweight tussle, and an exciting featherweight clash between Tucker Lutz and Melsik Baghdasaryan.

The preliminary card features a variety of intriguing matchups, including Viktoriia Dudakova vs. Istela Nunes in a women’s featherweight bout, Austin Lingo vs. Melquizael Costa in a featherweight showdown, and a lightweight clash between Evan Elder and Genaro Valdez.

Additionally, fans can look forward to a flyweight matchup between veteran Tyson Nam and undefeated newcomer Azat Maksum, a lightweight bout between Alexander Munoz and Carl Deaton, and a bantamweight opener featuring Ashlee Evans-Smith and Ailin Perez.

With a mix of established veterans and rising contenders, UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Bueno Silva promises to deliver a night of thrilling action and high-level competition. Fans can expect a blend of striking, grappling, and athleticism as these fighters step into the Octagon to showcase their skills. Whether it’s the main event or the preliminary bouts, each fight presents an opportunity for the fighters to leave a lasting impression and move closer to their respective goals within the UFC.
