Following the news that we are on the brink of an historic ‘trade’ deal which would see UFC flyweight great Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and ONE Championship’s undefeated welterweight king “Funky” Ben Askren switch promotions, Askren has wasted no time at all in calling out half of the UFC’s top 10 welterweights.
The number of fans calling for Darren Till (17-1-1) to move up to 185lbs have been steadily increasing for some time now and it would appear that their wish has finally been granted.
UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has confirmed he has suffered a hand injury that will require surgery, which will make him ineligible for the UFC 230 main event slot at Madison Square Garden, New York on the 3rd November.

Saturday 8th September – American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas.
In the main event, Tyron Woodley will defend his UFC welterweight title against Darren Till. Woodley has seemed to be invincible at the top since winning the belt in dramatic fashion from Robbie Lawler.

Two years after Tyron Woodley shocked the world and obliterated the former UFC welterweight champion, Robbie Lawler, he has his fourth opportunity to defend his belt against the English brawler Darren Till. In this article, we will take a look at both fighters as we wait patiently for UFC 228.
Another week in the crazy world of MMA, we have had UFC Calgary with a crazy card, Conor Mcgregor has had his court hearing, Bellator adding multiple fighters to their roster and Dana Whites Tuesday Night Contender Series once again lives up to expectations. In this article, we will take a quick look at the main things that happened in mixed martial arts last week.
Liverpool’s own number two ranked welterweight Darren “The Gorilla” Till (17-0-1) is confirmed via Dana White, according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, to fight current UFC welterweight champion Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley (18-3-1) for the title at UFC 228 in Dallas, Texas.
Considering the way confusion reigns in a number of UFC divisions these days, the welterweight title picture seemed to be a relatively straight forward one.
Reigning champion Tyron Woodley (18-3-1) has held the belt since defeating Robbie Lawler in dramatic fashion back at UFC 201 in November 2016. Since then he’s defended the belt three times, fighting to a majority draw with Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at UFC 205 before defeating Wonderboy in a somewhat less entertaining contest at UFC 209. Four months later at UFC 214, Woodley defended his title for a third time, earning a unanimous decision win over Demian Maia.
Fans and professionals alike have had a lot to say about Darren Till weighing in 3.5lbs over the welterweight limit last weekend.
By Tills own admission, he is a large welterweight. We know he has a tough cut in the best of circumstances. While he has admirably taken full accountability and refused point blank to offer excuses for his miss, the UFC made it clear that a personal emergency interrupted his weight cut process the night before weigh ins.
Earlier today Paddy Power, one of Till’s sponsors, released some behind the scenes footage shot by members of the Liverpudlian’s camp during his ill fated attempt to reach 171lbs.
Whatever your opinion of Till, it does not make for comfortable viewing but I highly encourage you to take a look at it before forming an opinion.
