Let the games begin. With confirmation that Conor McGregor will indeed return in a headlining bout at UFC 246 against Donald Cerrone, you can expect more than a few fighters to try to talk their way onto that lucrative card. And the first to do so is middleweight contender Darren Till.
“Surely they need a co-main event? @robwhittakermma let’s go! #LowTopTing”
Till and Whittaker had previously agreed to fight in London in March via social media, but this is obviously a much higher-profile position for the two fighters to potentially find themselves in. Whittaker would be looking to bounce back from losing his title to Israel Adesanya, while Till would be in a prime spot to challenge Adesanya next if he beat Bobby Knuckles.
As mentioned, UFC 246 is headlined by a welterweight bout between McGregor and Cerrone.
