UFC odds are on the board for the full Fight Night card on December 5 with Marvin Vettori stepping up to take on Jack Hermansson in the main event, after Kevin Holland was pulled out due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Darren Til had originally been scheduled to fight Hermansson but dropped out due to an undisclosed injury at the beginning of October.
This should be an intriguing bout between two ranked middleweights. MMA odds opened with Hermansson as a -142 favorite before quickly moving to almost a pick 'em, with Vettori now the slim fave at -120.

UFC Fight Night Odds for the Main Event
Jack Hermansson vs Marvin Vettori
Jack "The Joker" Hermansson was a -250 favorite against Holland but oddsmakers are expecting a much closer fight against Vettori, with The Joker now the slimmest of underdogs at +100.
Hermansson currently No. 4 in the UFC middleweight rankings and is fresh off a first-round submission win over Kelvin Gastelum in July. That victory allowed him to bounce back from a knockout loss to Jared Cannonier and improved his record to 5-1 over his last six fights.
Hermansson isn't the most polished striker but he is an excellent grappler, with three of his last four wins coming via submission.
The "Italian Dream" Marvin Vettori (-120) enters as the No. 13 middleweight and is coming off a first-round finish of Karl Roberson in June. Vettori is now 4-1-1 in his last six fights with that draw coming against No. 12 middleweight Omari Akhmedov and the loss coming by split decision to the champ Adesanya.
The 27-year-old is a well-rounded fighter who combines high-pressure striking with good grappling and submission skills.
