With UFC at a new broadcasting home, UFC on ABC 2 delivered the goods with some great fights.
The event took place inside the UFC Apex. Additionally, the fights took place on April 10, where Kevin Holland looked to erase his recent fight against Derek Brunson. However, the long rangy American was tasked with taking on a freight train in the form of the Italian Marvin Vettori.
In addition to the solid headliner, the co-main event saw Sodiq Yousuff take on Arnold Allen in a prospect battle. Not to mention, the night wasn’t short in action after Mackenzie Dern submitted Nina Nunes in the first round. Overall, the fight night is going to shake up the rankings for sure. At the UFC on ABC 2 event, Julian Marquez established himself as a name after a brutal finish over Sam Alvey.
