Marvin Vettori on Darren Till being ranked #4: “It’s bulls***.”

Before UFC Vegas 16, Jack Hermansson was ranked #4 and originally scheduled to fight Darren Till, who was ranked #6. However, Till pulled out due to ongoing knee issues and the opportunity eventually fell on Marvin Vettori’s lap.

Vettori stepped in and defeated Hermansson via Unanimous Decision. This increased his ranking from #13 to #5. Consequently, this knocked Hermansson down to #6, which meant that Till’s ranking increased above both of them to #4, despite being the only one that didn’t fight.

This upset not just fans, but fighters too. Most notably, Vettori himself, who says that the ranking is “bulls***.”

The division’s Champion, Israel Adesanya has currently verbally agreed to face Light Heavyweight Champion, Jan Blachowicz. This means that there is time for Middleweight contenders to stake their claim for the next shot at the title.
