Best bets for UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Aldana

The women's bantamweight division is front and center this week, featuring four fighters ranked in the division's top six competing on the main card on Fight Island. The matchmaking is interesting, pitting two highly ranked former contenders against two lower-ranked relative newcomers.

But Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie have already faced each other and fought for titles, planting them firmly at the top of the division ranks behind champion Amanda Nunes. Irene Aldana and Julianna Pena are both surging younger talents who could each be one win away from a title shot if they can take down their higher-ranked opponents this week. The matchmaking makes the stakes a little bigger for the winners, and the rankings don't always determine the winner.

Prelims begin at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN+, and the main card starts at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+.
