John Kavanagh has just tweeted that the UFC have offered Nelson v Till as the main event at UFC London, which they have agreed to. Nelson 16-3-1 is coming off a loss while Till 16-0-1 is coming off a career best win over Donald Cerrone in October last year.
The fight isn’t confirmed yet but if it does get made, Nelson would hope that a win over Till puts him right back in the title mix, while Till hopes another win will keep him in line for a possible title shot later this year.
So @ufc have offered @GunniNelson v @darrentill2 main event #UFCLondon we've agreed so hoping to hear confirmation soon 🤜how do you guys like the match up? I'm reminded of the Thatch fight, big strong striker but I think Till is tougher challenge. One way to find out… pic.twitter.com/b7U81FpzBf

If this is indeed the main event, the question is what place does Michael Bisping have one the card, surely any farewell fight for Bisping is deserving of main event status.
UFC London is on March 17th at the O2 Arena.
