Kevin Holland vs. Marvin Vettori delivered in the best way possible, a good fight.
The two fighters met in a bout on Saturday night (April 10, 2021) at the UFC on ABC 2 event from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC Apex facility. The fight started out with Vettori getting kicked in the nuts.
As the first round went on, Marvin worked him over in the clinch with some shots and got a takedown late in the round only for Holland to get back to his feet. Vettori dominated the second round as he scored a takedown and did some serious damage to the left eye of Holland. The later rounds saw the same as Holland had nothing to defend the takedowns, but did manage to mostly get back to his feet. Vettori walked away with the decision win.
