One to Watch at UFC Vegas 55: Tabatha Ricci

Tabatha Ricci (6-1) had the toughest UFC debut I can remember in 2021, but now at UFC Vegas 55 she can start an octagon streak.  “Baby Shark” is a strawweight but took a short-notice bout up ten pounds to Flyweight against now ranked #6 Manon Fiorot (9-1) who has not lost in the UFC. Next fight she dominated Maria Oliveira (12-4) back home at 115 lbs. and looks like she could be a real force for any Strawweight who lacks a ground game.  The BJJ and Judo black belt’s striking is improving quick and she has a favorable matchup on her hands in Polyana “Dama de Ferro” Viana (12-4) at UFC Vegas 55: Holm vs. Viera
