Ketlen Vieira just added a big name to her mixed martial arts resume.

The Brazilian bloodied and battered Miesha Tate with superior standup en route to a unanimous decision triumph in the UFC Fight Night 198 main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday night. By derailing Tate’s comeback, Vieira gains some much-needed traction in the women’s bantamweight division on the heels of a disappointing defeat to Yana Kunitskaya this past February.
