Marvin Vettori picked up another victory Saturday and now finds himself on a five-fight winning streak. The Italian mixed martial artist outpointed Kevin Holland in a unanimous decision in the UFC on ABC 2 headliner.
Vettori completely exploited Holland’s suspect wrestling defense and dominated the entire fight in the grappling department.
Holland, who took the fight on short notice after Darren Till withdrew, is on a two-fight losing streak, as he had lost a decision to Derrick Brunson three weeks ago at UFC on ESPN 21.
