UFC Fight Night: Hermansson vs Vettori betting tips
On Saturday the UFC returns to Las Vegas with UFC Fight Night: Jack Hermansson vs Marvin Vettori – And here are the best betting tips for the event.
The main event features an all European middleweight clash, as Norway-based Swede Hermansson faces Vettori, also called “The Italian Dream”. Vettori was originally slated to face Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza on December 12th, but opponent drop offs for Hermansson forced the UFC to salvage a new main event.
While this is a fantastic opportunity for Vettori, who the odds makers seem to favourite, Hermansson is the perfect bet here. Standing at 2.1 odds at BetWinner, Hermansson is oddly the underdog, despite his impressive resumé.

Hermansson has faced substantially better competition over the past few years, with wins in five out of his last six bouts, the only loss a TKO loss to #3 ranked Jared Cannonier. Aside from that setback Hermansson has tapped out three Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts; Gerald Meerschaert, David Branch and most recently Kelvin Gastelum. His jerky, unorthodox striking style gives many fighters trouble, and is perfect for setting up his takedowns.
While Vettori’s three fight winning streak is impressive, he holds no wins over any current top 15-ranked middleweights. The hard-nosed Italian will surely press foreward and most likely packs a harder punch, but getting his hands on Hermansson wont be easy.
In two possible bets that would be great for lining up a parlay, we have the flyweight bout between Louis Smolka and Jose Alberto Quiñonez. and Gian Villante vs Jake Collier. Smolka stands at 1.7 and Villante at 1.5, both favourites but with good enough odds to bet on. Both are more experienced against top-notch competition than their respective opponents, and should pull off a win.
