Darren Till out of Marvin Vettori fight; Kevin Holland offers to step in

Darren Till is out of his fight with Marvin Vettori, with Kevin Holland offering to step in as a late notice replacement.

Darren Till is out of his April 10 fight with Marvin Vettori after sustaining an injury.

The Liverpudlian was set for the main event of UFC on ABC 2, only to be ruled out with a collarbone issue. With the UFC looking for alternate opponents for Vettori, Kevin Holland has offered his services to the promotion on just under two weeks notice.

It would be a decent recovery for Holland, who infuriated UFC president Dana White by refusing to take his Derek Brunson bout seriously during the contest. While Holland has made a name for being a ‘whacky’ fighter, it was perceived by most to be too much in that fight, which he lost on the scorecards handily.

“Always do my part 100% and these bunch of pussies can’t make it,” Vettori said via his social media upon receiving the Till news. “I’m next in line for the title, whoever has something to say show the fuck up in 2 weeks so I can whoop your ass and shut you off for good.”

It will be a devastating turn of events for Till, who looked most likely to receive a title shot should he have defeated Vettori.
