Marvin vettori will subsequently have an opponent subsequent weekend. Despite a defeat bringing a strong efficiency towards the long run undisputed champion Israel adesanya in 2018, the middleweight stays on 4 victories in a row, the final of which towards the damaging Jack Hermansson. He appears very near a championship struggle and has been campaigning for it for a number of months.
For his half, Kevin holland has simply seen the keenness aroused by his beginnings copiously slowed down. Indeed, if “The big mouth” (as he now calls himself) greater than marked the spirits in 2020 along with his 5 victories together with a number of spectacular KO / TKOs, the shock impact appears to have been annihilated by this defeat towards a Dereck Brunson (now quantity 4) far more skilled. If he managed to beat the present quantity 6 within the division on April 10, he would discover a place near the highest 5 and why not a title race behind.
A substitute struggle that’s finally not meaningless.
