THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Marvin Vettori became a victim of the enhanced testing which detected a SARM that should not have been in one of his supplements. He has served his six-month sentence and is ready to pick up a much-needed win but so is Cezar Ferreira who is coming off a loss back in November last year.

Vettori’s last win was over two years ago which was an impressive unanimous decision over Vitor Miranda. He then fought to a draw against Omari Akhmedov and then took on the current interim champion Israel Adesanya and pushed him to a split decision in what was the closest fight of the Nigerian’s career.

Ferreira has also been out the game for a while battling injuries. After earning a split decision over Nate Marquardt and submitting Karl Roberson he was out-scrapped by Ian Heinisch who earned a unanimous decision.

THE PREDICTION

The Italian is a strong grappler and has double the submission wins of Ferreira but will be wise to keep the fight on the feet. He is durable, powerful and has the technique to punish the Brazilian with his striking but needs to be cautious to avoid getting hurt and dragged to the ground where Ferreira will hunt a submission.

Winner: Vettori via Decision
