This is another important event that is set to become UFC history. Which will bring new opportunities to the fighters and change the UFC history. UFC Vegas 40, which has completed all its preparations and is in full swing, will be presented on October 16th at APEX Las Vegas, Nevada. Former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Tate vs. Vieira has been named in the main card. To make this event more thrilling, interesting and full of action.
Tate, who is very strong and second to none in the game, although she returned to the Octagon in July after a five-year absence, defeated Marion Reno in the third round by TKO.
Tate's stunning victory will give the 35-year-old a chance to make headlines again.
Before Reno's TKO in July. Tate (19-7) lost two fights in July and November 2016, defeated by Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington, respectively.
She nominated Holly Holm to become the UFC champion. She retired after losing to Pennington but returned to the competition this year.
A match against Vera is a step towards a return to the top of the game. On the other hand, Vieira (11-2) will try to avoid two consecutive defeats after a unanimous decision on Yana Konetskaya's back in February. The 29-year-old's last victory came in September 2020, when she won a unanimous decision.
Although Vieira has lost two of her last three matches, a high-profile win against Tate could help rise in the rankings.
The question arises as to who UFC Vegas 40 will be kind to. Will Tate be able to take a significant step towards winning the title? Or will Vieira be able to put her career on the winning track?
