Derek Brunson and Darren Till have been battling it out online for weeks, and now they’ll have the opportunity to do it in person.
The matchup was first announced by ESPN. Till’s booking is conditional on him recovering from a broken collarbone that forced him to withdraw from a scheduled fight with Marvin Vettori on April 10 at UFC on ABC 2. The UFC Fight Night event’s venue has yet to be revealed.
Darren Till is 1-1 in the middleweight division. He last fought against Robert Whittaker in the UFC on ESPN 14 headliner. He lost that fight via decision.
On the other hand, Brunson is on a four-fight winning streak. His recent victories came against rising talent Kevin Holland, last March.
