After an impressive performance against Jack Hermansson last time out, Roman Dolidze has a big task ahead of him when he takes on Marvin Vettori at the highly anticipated UFC 286 on March 18.
Coming off his lone loss of his professional career, the Georgian has been on a streak throughout the middleweight division and now faces a top-5 opponent for the first time in his UFC tenure. The powerful striker showed just how impressive he can be on the pitch and he hopes to prove it in London.
As reported by Brett Okamoto on social media, Marvin Vettori will put his No. 4 middleweight ranking on the line when he hosts the dangerous Roman Dolidze in the Octagon at UFC 286 next year.
“UFC 286 on March 18 in London is close to wrapping up its first major matchup. According to sources, Marvin Vettori vs. Roman Dolidze is available at middleweight. Numbers 4 and 8 in the rankings.”
‘The Italian Dream’ is hoping to fuel another title shot and get back into the winners column after losing a one-sided decision to Robert Whittaker at UFC Paris last time out.
Despite going 1-2 in his last three bouts, Vettori is undoubtedly one of the best contenders in the division and will be an extremely tough test for rising European powerhouse Dolidze.
If nothing stops the showdown from beginning, this will mark the 34-year-old’s fourth fight in less than a year, signaling his intent to become UFC champion. A victory over the Italian would accompany his big victories against the aforementioned Jack Hermansson, Phil Hawes and Kyle Daukaus, among others.
