UFC Vegas 23 poster drops for ‘Till vs Vettori’ on ABC

New, 14 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will pit middleweight contender Darren Till opposite Marvin Vettori in the upcoming “Battle for Europe” on ABC, recently made official for Sat., April 10, 2021 inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, also airing on ESPN+.

Now they have an official poster.

Till (18-3-1) abandoned his post at 170 pounds after a series of difficult weight cuts and was expected to become a major player in the middleweight division. After squeaking by Kelvin Gastelum with a split decision at UFC 244, “The Gorilla” went down on points against former champion Robert Whittaker at UFC Fight Island 3.

The 28 year-old Till has now dropped three of his last four.

As for Vettori (16-4-1), he can seemingly do no wrong in the years following his razor-thin decision loss to Israel Adesanya. “The Italian Dream” has rattled off four straight wins, including his unanimous decision nod over longtime contender Jack Hermansson at UFC Vegas 16 in Dec. 2020.

Also putting in work at the UFC Vegas 23 event in Las Vegas is streaking flyweight grappler Mackenzie Dern, who throws leather with the rough-and-tumble Nina Ansaroff. Elsewhere on the card, Arnold Allen battles Sodiq Yusuff in 145-pound action.
