Marvin Vettori -200 , Roman Dolidze +170
Marvin Vettori will be looking to rebound from his loss to Robert Whittaker. Vettori was outclassed during the three-round fight, falling short in both the wrestling and striking exchanges. Despite this, he's an incredibly durable fighter who is very well-rounded. Vettori should be comfortable wherever this fight goes, and he'll look to rebound to build a new winning streak in this contest.
Roman Dolidze is currently setting the Middleweight division alight. With performance bonuses in his last three fights over Kyle Daukaus, Phil Hawes, and Jack Hermansson, people have been joining the Dolidze hype train. This bout will be just his sixth fight at Middleweight, a division in which he's 4-1. His only loss at Middleweight came in his divisional debut to Trevin Giles. Much like Vettori, Dolidze is an exceptionally well-rounded fighter who can succeed in both the standup and on the mat, and he'll look to add Vettori to his winning streak to secure a top-5 ranking in this bout.
