This Saturday’s UFC 245 features a pivotal bantamweight bout on the preliminary card when Ketlen Vieira returns to take on Irene Aldana.
Vieira (10-0-0) makes her first appearance for the UFC since her March 2018 win over Cat Zingano. Since her promotional debut back in 2016, the 28-year-old has picked up wins over Sara McMann, Ashlee Evans-Smith and Kelly Faszholz.
Aldana (11-5-0) has won four of her last five with the loss coming by way of a split decision to former title challenger, Raquel Pennington. A win over Vieira could put the Mexican in the running for a title shot in 2020.
UFC 245 takes place this Saturday December 14, 2019, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The preliminary card featuring Vieira vs. Aldana will be aired live on ESPN 2 from 8pm EST.
