Marvin Vettori has long been considered one of the brightest prospects in the UFC’s middleweight division. The #13 ranked contender hails from Italy and at just 27-years of age has taken the UFC’s middleweight division by storm.
Ever since losing a split decision to Israel Adesanya, Vettori hasn’t looked back.
Vettori is a seasoned grappler. He is a Brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Filippo Stabile. Vettori’s impressive ground game was on display against current middleweight champion Israel Adesanya back when both the fighters came face to face in April 2018.
He has a solid chin that compliments his stand-up game that mostly involves pressuring his opponent into taking the fight to the ground.
“The Italian Dream” boasts an incredible resume with 16 wins and just four losses. He is currently on a four-fight win streak. He also competed at Venator, where he reigned as the Venator FC welterweight champion of the world.
