This week’s UFC Vegas 16 card may not be star studded, but it promises some interesting action. Marvin Vettori may be Jack Hermansson’s third opponent for the night, but he also just might be the most capable of challenging Hermansson in ever area. Otherwise, the card badly needs a true co-main, but a chance to see Movsar Evloev again is worth showing up for.
