Two exciting matchups were announced on Saturday afternoon, including Darren Till taking on Jack Hermansson at UFC London.
The ‘Till vs. Hermansson’ announcement was first reported by MMANytt.se on Twitter.
BJPENN.com has since confirmed with sources that the middleweight matchup is set to serve as the co-main event of the July 23rd fight card.
Darren Till (18-4-1 MMA) will be looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he takes to the Octagon in his backyard of England. ‘The Gorilla‘ last competed in September of 2021, where he suffered a submission loss to Derek Brunson. The Liverpool native has lost four of his past five fights overall.
Meanwhile, Jack Hermansson (22-7 MMA) will also enter UFC London looking to rebound, this after suffering a split decision loss to Sean Strickland in February. ‘The Joker’ has gone 2-3 over his past five fights.
Also announced this afternoon was a key men’s featherweight matchup ‘Josh Emmett vs. Calvin Kattar’, which will headline UFC Austin on June 18th.
