Swedish middleweight Jack “The Joker” Hermansson was supposed to face Darren Till on Saturday’s Fight Night Card in London. However, Till was forced to pull out of the bout and was replaced by Chris Curtis.

On the UFC media day “The Joker” opened up on Till cancelling the fight.

“I kind of anticipated it through the whole camp. I don’t know why. I just had a bad feeling about it,” Hermansson said. “The first time I wanted to fight him, he declined the fight. Second time he pulled from the fight. The third time he did not even announce the fight himself. Couldn’t see any sign of him fighting, and it just give me a bad feeling about it.”
