(WATCH) Marvin Vettori vs Kevin Holland LIVE STREAM (4/10/21): UFC Fight Night Online TV Channel
Marvin Vettori takes on Kevin Holland in a UFC fight night in Las Vegas this weekend. Liverpool’s Darren Till had been due to face Vettori but was forced to pull out through injury with Holland stepping in on just 10 days notice for the middleweight
Vettori’s last loss came against now-middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in April 2018 and he has won his last four encounters since. However, he’s had rotten luck with his activity as a staggering seven of his last 11 fights have been cancelled and he didn’t pull out of a single one of them.
Now though Holland has stepped in to give him a much-needed fight – just three weeks after his defeat to Derek Brunson. Vettori vs Holland: Date and start time

Till posted a statement on Instagram announcing on March 30 he would be forced to pull out due to a broken collarbone suffered in training.
Adesanya had said Till was next in line for a title shot had he won against Vettori – with the Brit devastated to miss his chance.
“Every person who is around me or who has been around me knows I train on a daily basis with f***** up knees, lower back, shoulders, hands and the list goes on,” he said.
“Yesterday while drilling I fell and straight away I knew I’d broken something. To say I’m f****** destroyed by it is an understatement.
“I’ve literally put my heart, soul, mind, physical body, cash, nutrition, sleep, recovery and then some into making sure I went out there next week and took his head off. And I was 100 per cent sure I was going to… and with ease!!!
“I’m sure he was thinking the same but ahh well.”
