Israel Adesanya Faces Marvin Vettori At UFC On Fox 29


A middleweight division encounter is the latest addition to the UFC On Fox 29 card as Israel Adesanya is in action against Marvin Vettori.

Adesanya (12-0-0) has already competed once under the UFC banner, defeating Rob Wilkinson by second round TKO at UFC 221. Adesanya has yet to see any of his professional MMA bouts go the distance, with six of those bouts ending within the opening round, while the other six ended in the second round. Adesanya did defeat one UFC veteran prior to signing with the promotion and that was a TKO victory over Melvin Guillard at Australian Fighting Championship 20.
