The Octagon remains in Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 16 event, an eleven-bout fight card headlined by Jack Hermansson vs Marvin Vettori.
Hermansson (21-5 MMA) was most recently seen in action this past July where he scored a sensation first round submission victory over Kelvin Gastelum. Prior that win, ‘The Joker’ was coming off a TKO loss to perennial division contender Jared Cannonier.
Meanwhile, Marvin Vettori (15-40-1 MMA) will enter UFC Vegas 16 on a three-fight winning streak, his latest being a submission victory over Karl Roberson in June. ‘The Italian Dream’ has gone 4-1-1 over his past six fights 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 event is co-headlined by a light heavyweight bout featuring veteran Ovince Saint Preux taking on Contender Series standout Jamahal Hill. ‘OSP’ missed weight by 1.5 pounds for the fight and is thus forced to forfeit twenty percent of his purse to his opponent.
Saint Preux (25-14 MMA) most recently competed at September’s UFC Vegas 9 event where he scored a second round knockout victory over Alonzo Menifield. Prior that win, Ovince had suffered a split-decision loss to Ben Rothwell in a heavyweight bout.
As for Jamahal Hil (7-0 MMA), ‘Sweet Dreams’ will be looking to keep his perfect record intact when he squares off with ‘OSP’ at UFC Vegas 16 this evening. The former Contender Series standout picked up his first career UFC win over Darko Stosic back in December.
