UFC Vegas 23 will be headlined by a middleweight bout between Marvin Vettori and Kevin Holland. The 'Trailblazer' stepped in at short notice to face Vettori after Darren Till was sidelined due to injury.

Marvin Vettori is currently ranked at #6 in the middleweight division and riding a four-fight win streak going into the fight.

Kevin Holland, on the other hand, had his hype train derailed by Derek Brunson at UFC Vegas 22. Holland won all five of his fights in 2020 and was awarded the 'Fighter of the Year' title, being the only middleweight to do so in UFC history.

Arnold Allen will return to the Octagon for the evening's co-main event against Sodiq Yusuf, who has also been on the sidelines for a while now. The number 10 and 11 ranked featherweight contenders will look to establish themselves as legitimate contenders in the division.

The main card for UFC Vegas 23 has three other bouts after the middleweight bout. Kyle Daukaus vs. Aliaskhab Khizriev was scrapped due to COVID-19 protocols. Sam Alvey will take on Julian Marquez at middleweight, Nina Ansaroff makes her return against McKenzie Dern in a women's strawweight fight, while a welterweight battle between Mike Perry and Daniel Rodriguez will start things off on the main card.
