A middleweight clash pitting Karl Roberson against Marvin Vettori has been added to the UFC Fight Night 171 lineup.

UFC Fight Night 171 takes place on May 13 at Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, and is headlined by a light heavyweight duel between Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira.

Roberson has been victorious in three of his last four UFC appearances. Most recently, the Dana White’s Contender Series alum submitted Roman Kopylov in the in the third stanza at UFC Fight Night 163 this past November.

Vettori, meanwhile, is coming off back-to-back decision triumphs against Cezar Ferreira and Andrew Sanchez in 2019. The Italian competitor is 4-2-1 in the Las Vegas-based promotion and 14-4-1 as a professional overall.
