UFC Vegas 23: Marvin Vettori vs. Kevin Holland fight card & live stream info.
It isn’t the clash of European stars that the UFC originally booked to headline UFC Vegas 23, but Marvin Vettori will still get a chance to showcase his talents on a fairly big stage when he tops the April 10 card that’ll air on ABC, and he’ll stand toe-to-toe with short-notice, quick-turnaround opposition Kevin Holland.
The bout was originally supposed to be Vettori taking on Darren Till, but Till was forced to withdraw from the bout on March 30 due to a broken collarbone. Holland, who competed in the UFC Vegas 22 headliner, gets the short-notice call, becoming what may be the first UFC fighter to headline back-to-back Fight Night cards.
Starting off his UFC run with a 2-2-1 record, including losses to Israel Adesanya and Antonio Carlos Junior, Vettori will enter this fight on a four-fight win streak, most recently scoring a unanimous decision win over Jack Hermansson in December.
After taking the UFC by storm in 2020 with five victories in five fights, tying a UFC record, Holland competed in the main event of UFC Vegas 22 a couple of weeks ago, providing little defense in a one-sided loss to Derek Brunson.
