She is most notably known for upsetting Ronda Rousey to win the bantamweight title, but her career has not been the same since. Injuries and inconsistency have halted her activity ever since, making Mayra Bueno Silva a potential must-win.

Bueno Silva has had a bit of a different run in the blue corner. She has won four straight and is a Dana White Contender Series alumnae from 2018. This would be the biggest win of her career if she can knock off Holm.
