Darren Till was excited to make his comeback in his home country March 21st at UFC London, but the search for Till’s next opponent will continue
Till returned to the octagon at UFC 244 with a win over Kevin Gastelum. There were many questions asked how Till would perform at this debut at middleweight but he silenced critics with a phenomenal performance.
Prior to his move at middleweight, Till was undefeated in 5 fights on his way to a title shot against Tyron Woodley. Till fell short against Woodley at UFC 228 losing via submission. Till returned at the beginning of 2019 against Jorge Masvidal losing via KO.
In a post on Instagram Till confirmed that he was helping fellow fighters prepare for the UFC London card but not preparing himself to step inside the octagon. Till was linked as a possible replacement for Robert Whittaker who pulled out his bout against Jared Cannonier at UFC 248 but Dana White insisted Till won’t be stepping in.
UFC + 29 from London will be headlined by Tyron Woodley vs Leon Edwards. The former welterweight champion is looking to get back into title contention against one of the hottest guys in the division. Edwards is riding an 8 fight win streak and a victory over Woodley will certainly land him a title shot next.
