Vettori (19-7-1 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since scoring a decision win over Roman Dolidze at March’s UFC 286 event. ‘The Italian Dream’ had gone 3-2 over his previous five Octagon appearances, suffering decision losses to Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya during that stretch.

Meanwhile, Jared Cannonier (17-6 MMA) entered tonight’s headliner having also gone 3-2 over his last five fights. ‘The Killa Gorilla’ was coming off a split decision victory over Sean Strickland in his most previous effort this past December.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 75 main event proved to be a coming out party for the 39-year-old Cannonier. After being rocked early in the opening round, ‘The Killa Gorilla’ went to put on the performance of his life for the remainder of the fight. Cannonier set a new significant strikes landed record for middleweight, beating down Vettori for the final four rounds of the contest. ‘The Italian Dream’ showed off his heart and incredible chin but was clearly no match for Jared Cannonier this evening.
