UFC: Kamaru Usman to act as the replacement if needed for Tyron Woodley or Darren Till at UFC 228

The number of fighters missing weight has drastically increased from where it was used to be. With fighters not allowed to compete by commissions, fighters facing health issues due to weight cut, fighters getting injured in the eleventh hour and a plethora of reasons for which a fighter might not make it to the fight, the UFC have found that having a replacement is a safe strategy.

Recently for the super fight between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier at UFC 226, surging contender Alexander Volkov was the Plan B. Also for the TUF 27 main event between Israel Adesanya and Brad Tavares, Thiago Santos was sent to Vegas as a replacement.

Similarly for the welterweight bout between champion Tyron Woodley and contender Darren Till, #6 ranked Kamaru Usman will serve as a replacement.
