The two were initially expected to fight back at what ended up being UFC on Fox 28 on February 24th expect in London. However, things didn’t pan out as Wonderboy was still recovering from thumb injuries that occurred in his last outing at UFC 217 in November.
But now things are good to go as BJPenn.com’s own Chris Taylor reports that the welterweight main event is set for May 27th.
BREAKING! PERSOURCESSTEPHEN THOMPSON ANSWERS THE CALL! “WONDERBOY” IS SET TO FIGHT DARREN TILL IN THE MAIN EVENT OF #UFCLIVERPOOL
Till will have a home game for this one as he attempts to make his claim as the best striker at 170-pounds. Long holding that moniker has been karate wizard, Stephen Thompson who has essentially outstruck everyone he’s faced inside the cage.
We haven’t seen each fighter in about the same time as Thompson last fought in November and Till in October. Thompson’s last fight was a unanimous decision victory over someone who looked to be a possible opponent for Till in Jorge Masvidal.
For Till, his last fight was the sensational breakthrough performance he had against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone when he stopped the legend with strikes in just the first round.
This matchup is sure to deliver some striking brilliance. Who do you have taking it?
