Marvin Vettori vs Roman Dolidze Prediction Breakdown:🥊

To kick off UFC 286's main card we have a middleweight matchup between 2 top 10 ranked contenders in #4 Marvin Vettori and #9 Roman Dolidze. The Italian Dream, Marvin Vettori, is coming off a tough submission loss to Robert Whittaker, while Georgian fighter Roman Dolidze is riding high after a victory over Jack Hermansson. Both fighters are looking to make a statement and move up the middleweight rankings, but only one can come out on top.

Their Last Performance:🥊

Marvin Vettori lost his last fight against former champion Robert Whittaker via decision. Vettori showed extreme toughness, but was simply outclassed by Whittaker.

On the other hand, Roman Dolidze was able to submit Jack Hermansson in the second round of their fight. Dolidze showcased why his guard is just so dangerous and earned a Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts. Up until the finish, Roman Dolidze was struggling to keep up in the stand up department against Jack Hermansson.

Strengths And Weaknesses:⚖️

Marvin Vettori is known for his strong grappling game, with 9 of his 18 wins coming by way of submission. He also has a iron chin having never been finished while fighting some of the best in the division. However, Vettori's striking has been criticized in the past, as he lacks the power to put away his opponents.

Roman Dolidze, on the other hand, is a powerful striker with 7 of his 12 wins coming by (T)KO. He also has a good grappling game, with 3 of his wins coming by submission. However, aside from Dolidze's power his striking is questionable after being picked apart by Hermansson has been criticized for his cardio in the past, with some saying he fades in the later rounds of fights.

Possible Outcomes:🔮

  1. Vettori outlasts Dolidze - Vettori is known for his relentless pace and excellent cardio, which could prove to be a major factor in this matchup. Vettori is the ultimate survivalist with his chin and cardio he's designed to go the distance not only in 3 round fights but as well in 5 rounders.
  2. Dolidze submits Vettori - Against Jack Hermanson we witnessed the dangers of Dolidze's guard, if Marvin Vettori finds himself in a similar position he could be in trouble himself.

Most likely this fight goes the distance as both guys will have trouble finishing off their opponent. If the fight is indeed going to end in a decision its gonna favor Marvin Vettori with his extreme durability and cardio
