Darren Till is not happy with Marvin Vettori questioning the legitimacy of his UFC on ABC 2 main event withdrawal.

Till (18-3-1 MMA, 6-3-1 UFC) was forced to pull out of Saturday’s fight with Vettori (16-4-1 MMA, 6-2-1 UFC) at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on less than two weeks’ notice after he suffered a broken collarbone in training. He was “f*cking destroyed” by the situation, but Vettori showed him no compassion.

During Wednesday’s UFC on ABC 2 media day, Vettori questioned Till’s injury, and called it “suspicious.” He admitted he was merely speculating, but did not pain Till in a good light (via Twitter):
