A middleweight main event of Darren Till vs Uriah Hall is being targeted to headline UFC London on March 19th as first reported by Ariel Helwani.

Darren Till vs Uriah Hall

Darren Till (18-4-1, 6-4-1) has hit a roadblock during his journey in the middleweight division and has gone on a two-fight losing streak since his debut in the weight class where he beat Kelvin Gastelum. ‘The Gorilla’ had his eyes set on a title fight against division champion Israel Adesanya and could have been next up for ‘The Last Style Bender’ had he beaten Derek Brunson in early September.

Uriah Hall (17-10, 10-7 UFC) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Sean Strickland which saw his four-fight win streak come to an end. His last two fights before that saw him collect wins against legendary opponents in Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva. He is currently ranked #9 in the middleweight rankings, one place behind Till who sits at #8.

Both fighters will be looking to merge to the top of the division with a win.

Till has previously shown interest in fighting both Sean Strickland and Khamzat Chimaev. However, the Brit will instead face another ranked opponent in Hall who has shown his potential of reaching the top of the division.

The UFC Fight Night set to take place on March 19th has yet to have been confirmed to be hosted in London. Yet the UFC is rumored to be working for the organization to finally make its return to the UK for the first time since 2019.

With Darren Till vs Uriah Hall in the works to headline the event, the UFC Fight Night is starting to take shape. With a list of UK talent on show for the fans to relish.

The current UFC Fight Night line-up which is likely to take place in the O2 Arena in London is as follows:

  • Tom Aspinall vs Shamil Abdurakhimov
  • Jack Shore vs Umar Nurmagomedov
  • Jake Hadley vs Francisco Figueiredo
  • Molly McCann vs Luana Carolina
  • Muhammad Mokaev vs Cody Durden
