Review by AllTheBestFights.com: 2020-12-10, pretty good finish between Linton Vassell and Ronny Markes but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two (take a look at our ranking of the best mma fights of 2020).
Linton Vassell entered this fight with a pro mma record of 19-8-0 (79% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.11 heavyweight in the world. He lost three consecutive bouts between 2017 and 2019, the last one with Valentin Moldavsky (Linton Vassell vs Valentin Moldavsky) but he came back to win against Sergei Kharitonov in November 2019 (Sergei Kharitonov vs Linton Vassell).
His opponent, the black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu Ronny Markes, has a record of 19-7-0 (63% finishing rate) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since June 6, 2019 when he defeated Sigi Pesaleli; before this bout, in 2018, he had lost to Sean O’Connell and Brandon Halsey. Markes vs Vassell is on the undercard of Ilima-Lei Macfarlane vs Juliana Velasquez – Bellator 254. Watch the video and rate this fight!
