Today’s UFC Vegas 43 event was headlined by a women’s bantamweight contest featuring former champ Miesha Tate taking on Ketlen Vieira.

Tate (19-8 MMA) ended her four-year hiatus back in July, where she scored a third round TKO victory over Marion Reneau. That served as Miesha’s first win since March of 2016, where she had submitted Holly Holm at UFC 196 to capture the promotions 135lbs title.

Meanwhile, Ketlen Vieira (12-2 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since February, where she had suffered a unanimous decision loss to Yana Kunitskaya. That setback was preceded by a victory over Sijara Eubanks in 2020.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 43 main event went the full twenty-five minutes. Miesha Tate was able to get off some decent punches in the fight, but it was the jab and volume of Ketlen Vieira that ultimately proved to be the difference maker. After five rounds of hard fought action, the Brazilian was awarded a much-deserved unanimous decision victory from the judges in attendance.
