Darren Till Is Out Of Jack Hermansson Bout Due To Injury
Darren Till is out of the scheduled middleweight co-headliner against Jack Hermansson due to an undisclosed injury, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.
Hermansson remains on the card, while veteran Chris Curtis replaces Till, a UFC official said. UFC London on will take place on July 23.
Currently, ESPN has Hermansson ranked No. 10 in the world at middleweight, while Till is No. 9.
Hermansson’s (22-7) last fight was a split-decision loss to Sean Strickland back in February. The Sweden-born fighter lives and trains in Norway, and he has won six of his past nine fights.
Till (18-4-1) is an England native, and has dropped four of his past five fights.
Meanwhile, Curtis (29-8) has won eight straight fights, including his first three in the UFC. He is currently coming off a unanimous-decision win over Rodolfo Vieira on June 25. Curtis, a 34-year-old Las Vegas resident, has been a pro since 2009.
He notably retired and unretired in 2019 on the same night during the PFL playoffs. Since that night he has not lost a fight, and he earned his way into the UFC last year.
