‘The Italian Dream’ is hoping to push towards another title shot and get back into the winners’ column after losing a one-sided decision to Robert Whittaker at UFC Paris last time out.

Despite being 1-2 in his last three bouts, Vettori is without a doubt one of the best contenders in the division and will be an extremely tough test for rising European powerhouse Dolidze.

If nothing prevents the matchup from commencing, this will be the 34-year-old’s fourth fight in less than a year, signaling his intent at becoming a UFC champion. A win over the Italian would accompany his huge victories against the aforementioned Jack Hermansson, Phil Hawes, and Kyle Daukaus, among others.
