Robert Whittaker Withdraws Himself from Fighting Marvin Vettori at UFC 275

Robert Whittaker, former UFC Middleweight Champion announced this Wednesday that he is out from the UFC 275 match with another former Venator FC Welterweight Champion, Marvin Vettori.

The faceoff was supposed to happen on 11th June in Singapore Indoor Stadium. But unfortunately, Whittaker had to back off from the matchup due to his injury. 

This Wednesday, the Kiwi fighter took to Twitter to ensure that he is no longer fighting for the title due to his injury. Reportedly, he got a freakish ‘abdominal injury’ in a training session which could prove fatal if he takes part in the matchup.

“Sorry to say guys due to an injury I took early in the camp I’m not able to compete in June,” says the 31 years old fighter. But he ensures his fans that he will be back in the Octagon after a few months of recovery. His fans have fully supported his decision and hoping for his speedy recovery. 

Vettori the Italian mixed martial artist, on the other hand, is seeking a replacement and has appealed to his mates on Twitter, including Darren Till, Khamzat Chimaev, and others, to face him in the Octagon.
