UFC on ESPN 47: Fight date, schedule, undercard & betting odds

Middleweight title hopefuls Marvin Vettori and Jared Cannonier headline UFC on ESPN 47 at the Apex on 18th June.

After recent failed attempts to win the middleweight belt, Vettori and Cannonier are looking to stake their claim for another shot at the title.

Vettori, ranked #3, suffered a unanimous decision loss against champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 286 in June 2021.

The Italian bounced back with a victory over Paulo Costa on debut in the light heavyweight division but he was on the losing side when returning to middleweight to face Robert Whittaker in September 2022.

A unanimous decision win over Roman Dolidze last time out saw Vettori get back on track and the 29-year-old is looking to further build momentum when he takes on Cannonier.

Cannonier made his middleweight debut in 2018 and he has won six of his eight contests in the interim to climb to #4 in the rankings.

He was handed a title shot in July 2022 but, like Vettori, came up short in a unanimous decision defeat at the hands of Adesanya at UFC 276.

The Killa Gorilla, who has previously competed at heavyweight and light heavyweight, returned to the win column with a split decision victory over Sean Strickland in December.

There's a lightweight contest slated to take place as the co-main event with Arman Tsarukyan taking on Joaquim Silva.

#8 ranked Tsarukyan saw a five-fight win streak ended via a decision defeat to Mateusz Gamrot in June 2022 but he has since beaten Damir Ismagulov and needs to avoid losing to unranked Silva to remain in the conversation for a title shot.
