Jack Hermansson itching for a fight, calls out Kelvin Gastelum

Jack Hermansson has diverted his attention to another top middleweight contender.

Hermansson initially was gunning for a matchup against Darren Till at UFC London, but it appears the UFC has other ideas for Till. That has forced Hermansson to pursue another fight.

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Hermansson (20-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) mentioned the UFC had plans of pitting him against Till in the UFC London main event, but in a recent interview with “The Mac Life,” UFC president Dana White said Till probably won’t be fighting Hermansson.

UFC on ESPN+ 30 will be headlined by two heavyweights with serious fight-ending abilities. Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Alistair Overeem will look to rebound when he takes on the streaking Walt Harris in the UFC on ESPN+ 30 main event on April 11, at Moda Center in Portland, Ore....
