Marvin Vettori made a statement and re-entered the middleweight title picture by overcoming fellow contender Paulo Costa at UFC Vegas 41 on Saturday.

Despite having to fight at light heavyweight, Vettori dominated the early exchanges in the headliner at the UFC Apex. ‘The Italian Dream’ connected with some good combinations in the opening frames. However, ‘The Eraser’ retaliated with several body shots and counter hooks.

In the end, Vettori succumbed the Brazilian to a second consecutive loss. The Italian had his hand raised via unanimous decision.

The co-main event saw a majority draw between unranked lightweights Grant Dawson and Rick Glenn. Dawson dominated the first two rounds with sharp wrestling. A couple of takedowns gave him a 20-18 lead on all three scorecards.

However, Glenn turned the tables in the third by evading takedown attempts and getting on top of his opponent. After inflicting heavy blows, he applied a choke on Dawson, who saw off the last seconds without tapping, despite being dazed following the final horn. A 10-8 round on two scorecards saw him rescue a draw.

Prior to that, Jessica-Rose Clark used grappling to her advantage to claim a unanimous decision victory over Joselyne Edwards in a women’s bantamweight clash.

There was very little stand-up fighting on display as Clark completed multiple takedowns and had ground control. Edwards, meanwhile, did have some decent offense in the third round, but was unable to avoid defeat.

Alex Caceres, Francisco Trinaldo and Nicolae Negumereanu were the other winners on the main card of UFC Fight Night 196.
