Marvin Vettori Fight Style & Form
Marvin Vettori is one of the most fundamentally-sound fighters in the middleweight division. He made his UFC debut in 2016 with a victory over Alberto Uda via guillotine choke, only to lose his next match against Antonio Carlos Junior via unanimous decision.
Following that, he notched five victories, one draw and just one loss, which came via split decision against the current UFC middleweight champion in Israel Adesanya.
He has won four fights in a row and will become one of the top contenders for a rematch with the Stylebender should he be victorious in this match.
His fighting style is mostly composed of wrestling and BJJ, though his stand-up game is very safe and he doesn’t try to headhunt his opponents.
Vettori has never lost a fight via Ko or TKO, and most of his victories have come via submission (9) or decision (5).
For Vettori, this fight is the perfect opportunity to further climb the UFC rankings by beating a weaker opponent, who stepped in on short notice and earned himself a rematch with Israel, along with a title shot.
Kevin Holland Fight Style & Form
The Trailblazer’s career path has taken a turn for the worst after his defeat against Derek Brunson.
Holland showed no maturity and no desire to win in that fight. He over-committed in his punches, leading Brunson to land easy takedowns and take advantage of Holland’s terrible ground defense. Disappointingly, he refused to listen to his corner, and repeatedly called out for Khabib, who was observing the fight from the stands, for advice.
Holland holds a UFC record of eight victories and three losses. UFC fans can thank him for accepting this fight on short notice and saving the event, however, this will be a test of how much he has learned and matured since the Brunson fight.
Although Vettori is by far the better wrestler and more complete fighter, Holland has a 17,7 centimeter reach advantage and is quicker on his feet.
For Holland, this is a match for redemption and showing the UFC fans that the loss to Brunson was a one-time blunder and that he is ready to become a superstar.
Marvin Vettori vs Kevin Holland Bets
Vettori has an excellent chin, but so does Holland, as both fighters have never been knocked out in their careers.
The one advantage Vettori holds in this match-up is wrestling, and his wrestling is at an elite level.
I have little doubt that Vettori will use his weight and wrestling to dominate Hollandon the ground. Take Vettori to win by decision at 2,62 odds.
