UFC Vegas 16 Predictions: Hermansson, Hill Earn Huge Wins

Fight day is here! UFC Vegas 16 is going down tonight at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. This card will feature a very exciting match-up between Jack Hermansson and Marvin Vettori. Hermansson originally was set to face Kevin Holland, until Holland had a positive COVID test, forcing the UFC to switch things up. Vettori was set to face Jacare Souza at UFC 256 but stepped up on short notice to save the main event of UFC Vegas 16.

The co-main event will see an always game Ovince Saint Preux take on an angry and motivated Jamahal Hill. The owner of four Von Flue Choke submission wins in the UFC, St Preux will be looking to add another finish to his already impressive resume. Hill is coming off of a ridiculous six-month suspension for a positive marijuana test that also resulted in his last win being overturned. Needless to say, UFC fans should be in for a great night of fights!
