Perennial middleweight contender Marvin Vettori is looking absolutely shredded ahead of his UFC on ABC 2 fight with Kevin Holland.
Vettori (16-4-1 MMA) and Holland (21-6 MMA) are set to square off in the headliner of next weekend’s UFC Fight Night event in Las Vegas.
Marvin Vettori was initially slated to face Darren Till at the event, however, the Liverpool native was forced to pullout of the contest after suffering a broken collarbone in training.
Thankfully, Kevin Holland agreed to step up on short-notice to keep ‘The Italian Dream’ on the fight card.
Vettori will enter UFC on ABC 2 sporting a four-fight win streak, his latest being an impressive unanimous decision win over Jack Hermansson in December. The Italian’s last loss came at the hands of reigning middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who defeated Vettori by split-decision.
Knowing that an impressive victory over ‘Trailblazer’ could earn him a second crack at ‘Stylebender’, Marvin Vettori has clearly put the work in for this fight camp.
