A middleweight collision will serve as the headliner for a UFC on ABC card.
Darren Till vs. Marvin Vettori has been announced for April 10. The bout will be held inside the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is set to air live on ABC with the main card getting underway at 3 p.m. ET.
Till and Vettori are neck-and-neck in the official UFC middleweight rankings. Till holds the number four spot, while Vettori is just behind him at the fifth spot. The current UFC Middleweight Champion is Israel Adesanya.
Till hasn’t competed since his July 2020 loss to Robert Whittaker. He has gone 1-3 in his last four outings but he’s hoping his move to middleweight will pay dividends. “The Gorilla” is 1-1 as a 185-pounder under the UFC banner.
Vettori has put together a four-fight winning streak. His last defeat was back in April 2018 against Adesanya. Vettori is 6-2-1 under the UFC banner. His last bout took place back in December and it ended in a unanimous decision win over Jack Hermansson.
