Last night, the UFC battled through last minute drop outs, to put on another exciting event in Las Vegas. It was headlined by Jack Hermansson, who was previously scheduled to face Darren Till and then Kevin Holland. In the end, it was Marvin Vettori who he would face to protect his top five ranking.
Vettori put on one of his best performances to date. The Italian had previously lost a split decision to Israel Adesanya back in April 2018. Since then, he’s now put together four consecutive wins, with last nights being the biggest yet. Hermansson is ranked fourth in the division, and with Adesanya not scheduled to face anyone in the division, he has positioned himself among the top of the pecking order for getting another shot at the Champion. Next time, there will be much more on the line.
The full results are below.
