Jack Hermansson (21-5) was set to face Darren Till (18-3-1) at UFC Fight Night on December 5, but now the Swede will face Kevin Holland (20-5). ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto was the first to report the Till injury.
The “Joker” submitted Kelvin Gastelum (16-6-1) at the UFC Fight Island 2 in co-main event at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi in his last outing. The win put jack back on the winning track after he lost to Jared Cannonier (13-4) at UFC Copenhagen in his previous outing.
Till on the other hand was coming off of a loss to ex-champ Robert Whittaker in a close bout. However, the former welterweight did suffer a knee injury, which he was unable to recover from in time for the bout.
Holland is known as the “Trailblazer” and has won an impressive 4 fights in 2020. The fighter out of Texas will be looking for an unprecedented 5th win in the calendar year. He just won last weekend over Charlie Ontiveros via verbal submission.
