Karl Roberson vs Marvin Vettori served as the headliner of the UFC on ESPN 10 event.
The two fighters met in a middleweight bout on Saturday night (June 13, 2020) at the UFC on ESPN 10 event from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC APEX.
Vettori went for a guillotine choke early on but Roberson managed to kick off the fence and score a takedown in the first round.
Moments later, Vettori got up and scored a takedown of his own where he rained down a series of strikes before locking in the rear-naked choke for the win.
