This week’s UFC event was absolutely planned to be a banger when it first got put together. But, the move from London back to Vegas has scrapped a number of fights (along with injuries and other issues). All leaving a card that is still honestly not bad, headlined by a middleweight bout between Darren Till and Derek Brunson, but with more cancelled bookings than bouts still set for September 4th.
