Just a few days ago, the UFC’s April 10th event loser one half of its headling bout. Darren Till had to pull out of his scheduled matchup against Marvin Vettori after reportedly injuring his collarbone during training.

As soon as the news broke, “Big Mouth” Kevin Holland presented himself as a replacement opponent. This was a man who was coming off a decision loss to Derek Brunson nearly two weeks ago.

As an old saying goes, ‘Ask and you shall receive.’ On Thursday, multiple sources have confirmed that Vettori vs. Holland will be the new headliner for UFC on ABC 2.

“Trailblazer” also announced his upcoming bout on social media.

Holland kept himself active in 2020, winning all of his five fights convincingly. His biggest victory came in December when he knocked out Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza from his back.

Vettori, on the other hand, had two fights last year, most recently against fellow top-ten contender Jack Hermansson. He won by unanimous decision to take his win streak to four.

UFC on ABC 2 takes place at the APEX in Las Vegas.
