Dana White reveals upcoming Darren Till vs. Wonderboy fight in Till’s hometown

UFC president Dana White recently revealed that English welterweight Darren Till (16-0-1) has been pulled from Orlando’s UFC Fight Night 127 card in February 2018 and instead will fight No. 2 Stephen Thompson (14-2-1) at a future Fight Night card in Till’s hometown of Liverpool, England.

Details are still being hammered out.

According to Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times, White announced the fight at a Q&A in Santa Monica, California yesterday.

Till leapfrogged to No. 8 in the welterweight rankings after an impressive TKO win over Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 118 on October. He later took to social media to request a fight with Thompson.

Thompson recently decisioned Jorge Masvidal at UFC 217 last Saturday after losing to welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 209.
