Mayra Bueno Silva put on a dominating performance against Holy Holm, back in July of 2023. Silva won the fight via a Ninja choke in the second round.

With over 7 finishes by submission in her professional MMA career, the bantamweight title challenger is now one of the most feared contenders in the division.
