Their Last Performance:🥊

Strengths And Weaknesses:⚖️

Holly Holm is known for her striking abilities, especially her boxing and kickboxing skills. She has a background in professional boxing and has won multiple championships in that sport. However, Holm's weakness lies in her grappling and ground game, as she has been vulnerable to submissions in the past.

Yana Santos is also a skilled striker, with a background in Muay Thai and kickboxing. She has powerful leg kicks and has demonstrated impressive knockouts in her fights. However, Santos has struggled against opponents with strong grappling abilities and has been vulnerable to submissions.

Their Martial Arts Background:🥋

Holly Holm is a professional boxer, and kickboxer. Holly Holm trains at the renowned Jackson Wink MMA gym in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The gym has produced numerous UFC champions, including Jon Jones, and Georges St-Pierre.

Yana Santos has a background in Muay Thai and kickboxing, and has competed in both sports before transitioning to MMA. Yana Santos trains at the American Top Team gym in Coconut Creek, Florida. The gym has produced many UFC stars, such as Amanda Nunes, and Dustin Poirier.

Holly Holm vs Yana Santos Prediction:🔮

Yana Santos is coming off a nearly 20 month layoff after giving birth to her child. Making it very likely she will be extremely rusty while she faces off against one of the pioneers of women's MMA and former champ Holly Holm. Despite her age, she's still one of the top bantamweights in the division. In conclusion I don't love the odds here because of her age but for Holly Holm, this can be seen as a slight step down in competition against Santos who's been inactive.

Prediction: Holm ML
