UFC Vegas 73 main event features a match between Raquel Pennington and Irene Aldana for the second time

The upcoming UFC Vegas 73 event, scheduled for May 20 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, will be headlined by an enticing rematch between Raquel Pennington and Irene Aldana, two of the best-ranked bantamweight female fighters in the world. The promotion announced the five-round main event on Tuesday, paving the way for another clash between Pennington and Aldana since their previous meeting at the UFC on ESPN 4 in July 2019.

Pennington carries a split decision win over Aldana from their previous encounter, and this rematch will be crucial in determining the next contender to face the winner of UFC 289’s championship trilogy between Amanda Nunes, the reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion, and Julianna Peña, a former holder of the same title.

Additionally, there are several more exciting bouts to look forward to, such as Edmen Shahbazyan versus Anthony Hernandez, Diego Ferreira versus Michael Johnson, Karolina Kowalkiewicz versus Vanessa Demopoulos, and many more. The current fight card looks promising, but we can only estimate the final rating once the event concludes based on the performance of all fighters involved.
