Injury Takes Darren Till Out of April 10th UFC Headliner Against Marvin Vettori

Injury has forced Darren Till out of his April 10th UFC main event against Marvin Vettori. News of the five-round middleweight matchup being cancelled was first reported by Ariel Helwani of ESPN.

The fight was scheduled to headline a UFC card from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Till’s withdrawal comes due to a collarbone injury, per a report from Nolan King of MMA Junkie.

UFC are searching for a new opponent to face Vettori.  A follow-up report from Ariel Helwani of ESPN has said that Kevin Holland has elected to step-in to fight Vettori, although that fight has not been finalized as of yet.

Holland would be taking a quick turnaround just weeks after losing to Derek Brunson in a main event bout in March.

Should an opponent be confirmed, they’ll be taking a fight on less than two week’s notice.

Vettori will be wagering a four-fight win streak the next time he appears in the cage. His last fight was in December, where he defeated Jack Hermansson via unanimous decision.
