Kevin Holland (+245) vs. Marvin Vettori (-330)
Weight Class: Middleweight (185 lbs)
Marvin Vettori is heavily favored in this main event match-up against Kevin Holland. The Italian is recently coming off of his first main event victory, a five round decision win over Jack Hermanson.
Stylistically, Vettori is very well rounded. He keeps the pressure, has solid power and can mix in power wrestling. He does have a tendency to empty the gas tank, which could be an issue.
For Holland, he is staying true to form with a quick turnaround and short notice appearance. Holland will be stepping in on short notice in place of Darren Till. This comes on the heels of his first loss after a perfect 5-0 in 2020. He was recently defeated via heavy grappling pressure by Derek Brunson.
From a betting standpoint, there’s really no value in Vettori unless you’re really confident in a method of victory prop. It’s a sprinkle bet for me, but I’m going with Kevin Holland.
