Former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till makes his highly anticipated return to the UFC octagon this weekend, where he takes on Derek Brunson in the main event. Till is coming off a big loss to former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker, while Brunson finds himself in the form of his career on a four fight win streak. The main card is stacked with Liverpool stars, with heavy-hitter Tom Aspinall taking on Sergey Spivak in the co-main event. The main card also features one of the most hyped-up debuts in recent memory, where Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett will take on Luigi Vendramini.
The UK appearances don’t stop there however. Jack “Tank” Shore makes his return to the octagon after his most recent victory against Hunter Azure. After a few opponent changes, it was finally confirmed that Shore would face Liudvik Sholinian. Molly McCann will also look to end her losing streak when she steps up against Ji Yeon Kim. Other top fights on the card worth mentioning are Modestas Bakauskas vs Khalil Rountree, Alex Morono vs David Zawada and Charles Jourdain vs Julian Erosa.
