A middleweight bout between Marvin Vettori and Karl Roberson serves as the co-headliner of tonight’s UFC on ESPN 10 event in Las Vegas.

Roberson (9-2 MMA), who had missed weight for tonight’s contest, entered the bout on a two-fight winning streak having defeated Wellington Turman and Roman Kopylov in his most recent Octagon appearances.

Meanwhile, Marvin Vettori (14-4-1 MMA) was looking to extend his current win streak to three in a row when he faced Roberson this evening. ‘The Italian Dream‘ was coming off back-to-back decision victories over opponents Cezar Ferreira and Andrew Sanchez in his two previous outings.

The pair already had a heated rivalry, which involved a hotel altercation following the cancellation of their previously scheduled bout.

Tonight’s UFC on ESPN 10 co-main event proved to be an action packed contest while it lasted. After exchanging some leather the fight hit the ground, where both men were able to execute some impressive scrambles. However, the “Italian Dream’ was eventually able to secure dominant position on the canvas and quickly secured a rear-naked choke finish.
