UFC is back in Vegas again with another card featuring numerous compelling match-up. In the main event, Jack Hermansson faces rising contender in Marvin Vettori.
Jack Hermansson has had a wild ride as far as searching for opponents is concerned. He was initially scheduled to fight Darren Till, but the Liverpudlian got injured and he was replaced by Kevin Holland, who tested positive for covid-19.
This fight could further strengthen Jack Hermansson’s shot at the middleweight title if he wins this fight. On the other hand, a win for Marvin Vettori could mean that he gets further catapulted up in the rankings.
In the co-main event, former title challenger Ovince St Preux takes on undefeated rising star Jamahal Hill.
