Tonight’s UFC Vegas 16 event was headlined by a middleweight bout between perennial division contenders Jack Hermansson and Marvin Vettori.

Hermansson (21-5 MMA) was most previously seen in action this past July where he scored a sensation first round submission victory over Kelvin Gastelum. Prior that win, ‘The Joker’ had suffered a TKO loss to Jared Cannonier which snapped a four-fight win streak.

Meanwhile, Marvin Vettori (15-40-1 MMA) had entered UFC Vegas 16 on a three-fight winning streak, his latest being a submission victory over Karl Roberson in June. ‘The Italian Dream’ had gone 4-1-1 over his past six Octagon appearances overall, with his lone setback in that time coming to reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya by way of split-decision.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 16 main event proved to be an absolute war. Marvin Vettori was able to drop Jack Hermansson in the early minutes of the fight but ‘The Joker’ was able to survive. By round three it appeared that Hermansson was on the verge of a comeback but Vettori stormed back to win the finals two rounds.
