Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

We have an exciting pay-per-view event going down at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX on Saturday night, but before we can focus on UFC 271, let’s take a look at our updated schedule. This week, the promotion either announced or finalized 15 fights, and a women’s bantamweight bout between ranked contenders has been confirmed.

Holly Holm has her return to the Octagon set for May. The ‘Preacher’s Daughter’ will meet Ketlen Vieira in a five-round headliner at a UFC Fight Night scheduled for May 21 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Holm has not fought since her unanimous decision win over Irene Aldana at UFC on ESPN 16. She was booked against Julianna Peña and Norma Dumont but was forced to withdraw from both fights because of injuries. Vieira has stayed active, going 2-1 in her past three appearances. The Brazilian recently defeated Miesha Tate via unanimous decision at UFC Vegas 43 last November.
