[FREE-TV] Vettori vs Holland Live Stream Full Fight: How to Watch, TV Channel
The latest UFC Fight Night is an interesting one, with a quirk of fate leading to a last-minute change to the main event. Darren Till was set to return to the Octagon in a clash against fellow contender Marvin Vettori that would have put the winner into the conversation for a future middleweight championship fight. However the Brit suffered a broken collarbone late last month and had to withdraw.
On April 1, the Italian’s replacement opponent was confirmed as Kevin Holland, which caught many off-guard given that Holland last fought as recently as Mar. 20 in a disappointing decision loss to Derek Brunson. Holland will look to erase the bitter memories of that performance fast and bounce back at the expense of Vettori.
In the United States, this will be the second ‘UFC on ABC’ event, meaning the major TV network will be showing the main card while ESPN+ will also provide coverage including prelims. In the U.K., BT Sport will begin coverage of the action from 6 p.m., which will include most of the prelims. UFC Fight Pass will have the show available to many other countries, and will stream the prelims globally.
Meanwhile, fight fans in Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain will be able to stream the full card on DAZN. You can subscribe to the sports streaming service
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just over 24 hours away from its UFC Vegas 23 mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside APEX facility this Sat. afternoon (April 10, 2021) in Las Vegas, headlined by a middleweight showdown between Marvin Vettori and Kevin Holland.Vettori’s last loss came against now-middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in April 2018 and he has won his last four encounters since.
However, he’s had rotten luck with his activity as a staggering seven of his last 11 fights have been cancelled and he didn’t pull out of a single one of them.

The main event took a bit of a hit with the loss of Darren Till, but this weekend’s UFC on ABC 2 event is crammed to the gills with what should largely be action fights. Kevin Holland has once again stepped up on short notice, this time to fight top contender Marvin Vettori. Arnold Allen and Sodiq Yusuff are looking to separate themselves from the fast rising prospects in the featherweight division, and Nina Ansaroff makes her long awaited return against BJJ ace Mackenzie Dern.

After a relaxing week off from the UFC, the promotion is back in business for the start of a seven-week journey that includes two events in the U.S. outside of the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. We kick this early 13-fight card off in the welterweight division, between two men who could not have had more diametrically opposed last outings. In a new weight class, Kasanganay (8-1, 1-1 UFC) will try to bounce back from the first loss of his career as the recipient of the “Knockout of the Year” courtesy of Joaquin Buckley, and he will face the upset-minded Palatnikov (6-2, 1-0 UFC). Drawing the first assignment of the day is referee Chris Tognoni, and with a touch of gloves, it’s on with the show! Kasanganay opens up with a swinging leg kick, and he darts forward to throw punches but Palatnikov is ready to counter him with a few shots. He lands a couple more, only to receive retaliatory punches from Kasanganay. Palatnikov scores a leg kick, and when he aims another, Kasanganay drills him with an overhand right and grabs the leg. “Tshilobo” bullies his way into a takedown attempt, where he puts the Hong Kong native on his back in a comfortable yet heavy half guard. Palatnikov is unable to free himself with a fence grab, and Kasanganay is aiming his shoulder pressure for a potential arm-triangle choke while on top. Palatnikov recovers to full guard as Kasanganay looks to advance, but the former has his neck pressed up against the corner of the cage and the floor, trying to walk his way up. Palatnikov gets away with another fence grab – he is warned by Tognoni but still does it – and stands back up. Kasanganay wings right hooks on his way towards his opponent, where he changes levels into a double. Once more, Palatnikov hooks his fingers on the fence and twists his foe around, and is admonished again but gains position because of it. The two jockey for position until Kasanganay drops for a single, and Palatnikov punishes him with a few thudding punches to the side of the head. Kasanganay fires off a leg kick and chains it into a takedown attempt, but Hong Kong’s Palatnikov is able to rebuff him and press him into the cage. Kasanganay continues to press the takedown, but he is stopped time and time again but is the one pressuring. Palatnikov is able to gain separation thanks to a solid knee to the chest, and the two trade strikes right up to the bell.
