Overall the three fights announced for this card are all important bouts in their respective divisions. As mentioned earlier, the winner of Till vs. Vettori could very well be next in line to fight Adesanya, particularly if Till comes away with his hand raised as he hasn’t had the chance to fight the champ yet. The Allen vs. Yusuff fight will help determine which of these two men is ready to take the leap into the top-10 of the UFC featherweight division. And the winner of Ansaroff vs. Dern likely wouldn’t be more than one or two wins away from the title at 115lbs. It’s a great start to the card, now let’s see what else the UFC adds to it.
