Matthew Petela Staff Writer

On Saturday, Dec. 5, the UFC hosted its 19th broadcast on ESPN from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The event once again featured no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the night’s main event, middleweights Jack Hermansson and Marvin Vettori collided. Hermansson was originally slated to face Kevin Holland, but a positive COVID-19 test forced the Italian Vettori into the main event spotlight.

The co-main event pitred former interim light heavyweight title challenger Ovince Saint Preux against Jamahal Hill.
