Vettori and Adesanya met three years ago in the same arena, and Adesanya earned a split decision victory. Adesanya and Vettori both remained undefeated at Middleweight since 2018. While Adesanya remembers himself winning the fight, Vettori felt a rematch was necessary.
Last night, the two fought at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, where Adesanya defeated Vettori.
Prior to the fight, Vettori took to Instagram and stated, “It’s my destiny to be the first Italian UFC champion. #theitaliandream.”
