Robert Whittaker has revealed that he would not be able to compete against Marvin Vettori at UFC 275 due to an injury he took in the camp.
Whittaker disclosed this news on Twitter by sharing a tweet. He stated that the injury is not healing in time, and hence he would return to the octagon a couple of months later.
Meanwhile, Marvin Vettori still wants to be a part of the UFC 275 card. As a result, he challenged Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till for a potential match at the PPV event.
Vettori is not only targeting Chimaev and Till, but he is also open to having a match against the former Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold. The latter didn’t have any fight in the past three years, however, he is continuously teasing his return to the octagon.
Now, it remains to be seen whether Marvin Vettori will get a new opponent for UFC 275 or his bout with Robert Whittaker will be postponed.
UFC 275 is all set to take place in Singapore on June 11 and will be headlined by Glover Teixeira vs Jiri Prochazka Lightweight championship bout & Valentina Shevchenko vs Taila Santos women’s flyweight championship bout.
