Marvin Vettori keeps adding wins to his latest streak.

The UFC middleweight contender picked up another victory Saturday and now finds himself on a five-fight winning streak. Vettori outpointed Kevin Holland in a unanimous decision in the UFC on ABC 2 headliner.

Vettori completely exploited Holland’s suspect wrestling defense and dominated the entire fight in the grappling department.

From the first round, Vettori (16-3-1 MMA, 6-2-1 UFC) took down and controlled Holland (21-6 MMA, 8-3 UFC) at will. The Italian fighter landed ground-and-pound and even attempted submissions throughout the fight, but Holland did a great job at surviving and staying in the bout. However, Holland’s success didn’t extend from defending Vettori’s ground attacks. He had a tough time defending takedowns and getting up off the ground.

Holland did connect with some good shots while they fought on the feet at the beginning of each round, but nothing significant or close to ending the fight.

Vettori now hold wins over Cezar Ferreira, Andrew Sanchez, Karl Roberson, Jack Hermansson, and Holland as part of his most recent streak. His last defeat came to current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya back in 2018.

Holland, who took the fight on short notice after Darren Till withdrew, is on a two-fight losing streak, as he had lost a decision to Derrick Brunson three weeks ago at UFC on ESPN 21.
