Darren Till has been rewarded for his massive win over Donald Cerrone with another huge fight against none other than Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
The announcement was made by White at a Q&A in Santa Monica, California and was reported by Lance Pugmire of the LA Times.
White confirmed that the fight will take place on Feb 24 in the UK. The original plan was the fight night event that evening to take place in Orlando, Florida but that now appears to have been changed.
When asked if the event would be in Liverpool, White didn’t confirm or deny.
Noteworthy is the face that Cage Warriors have the Echo Arena in Liverpool booked on Feb 24.
Till (16-0-1) is coming off the biggest win of his career have beaten Cerrone at UFC Fight Night Gdansk in Poland. He was linked to a fight with Mike Perry, but the latter had alrwsdy been matched with Santiago Ponzinibbio on December 16.
Thompson (14-2-1) is a two time former title contender who is currently ranked #2 in the division. He won just last weekend at UFC 217 when he defeated Jorge Masvidal.
