New, 3 comments

Zane Simon and Connor Ruebusch return to breakdown this week’s UFC event in Las Vegas, NV. With picks and odds for every bout on the card. From Marvin Vettori vs. Kevin Holland in the main event down to Impa Kasanganay vs. Sasha Palatnikov in the opening prelim.

The main event took a bit of a hit with the loss of Darren Till, but this weekend’s UFC on ABC 2 event is crammed to the gills with what should largely be action fights. Kevin Holland has once again stepped up on short notice, this time to fight top contender Marvin Vettori. Arnold Allen and Sodiq Yusuff are looking to separate themselves from the fast rising prospects in the featherweight division, and Nina Ansaroff makes her long awaited return against BJJ ace Mackenzie Dern.
