‘You were going to be my easiest fight’ - Darren Till slams ‘walking punch bag’ Marvin Vettori

This coming Saturday was supposed to present Darren Till with a major opportunity. The ‘Gorilla’ may only be 1-2 since losing his welterweight title shot against Tyron Woodley back in September of 2018, but the expectation from middleweight king Israel Adesanya seemed to be that a victory over Marvin Vettori at UFC Vegas 23 could put Till right back in contention for UFC gold.

It doesn’t make much sense, then, that Till would have let that opportunity fall by the wayside if there were any way to avoid it. The Team Kaobon fighter had to be removed from his headlining bout against the ‘Italian Dream’ just over a week out from the fight, due to a broken collarbone.
